My Artisan Design Team Faux Linen Tip was shared by Stampin’ Up! on their Socials this week. This is a technique that I’ve not visited for a very long time and wanted to share.
A technique that looks beautiful with a repeat pattern that helps give the illusion of a continuous fabric pattern. Perhaps Faux Linen or Silk even.
Using the Berry Harvest Background Stamp, I stamped the image using Versamark Ink and Heat set White onto Fluid 100 Watercolour cardstock. This helps to give a nice soft image.
Taking a water painter, I started to Watercolour the entire image.
A background of Pool Party ink helped pull together the soft muted colours that I’d chosen.
Taking a piece of regular tissue paper slightly larger than the watercolour cardstock, I crumpled it into a ball. Carefully squeezing before unrolling and setting aside ready for use.
Taking Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and a finger dauber, I dabbed Liquid Glue all over the watercolored image.
The Glued surface gave the perfect background to smooth out my tissue paper, ensuring to keep some crinkles throughout.
Once full covered and flattened, you need to cut off the excess tissue paper that’s overhanging.
Your panel is now ready for use within your project.
Heat embossing a section of the background stamp, watercoloring and fussy cutting, I added a cluster of Berries alongside my sentiment.
A soft delicate card background that I hope you like as much as I do. So many options using this technique that I hope you’ll give it a try.
