Playing Around with Techniques

I love learning new techniques. The card below is made using the Faux Linen technique. The sad thing is that the camera does not capture how beautiful the paper is using this technique. It really does look like linen. Stunning.

Stamps: Flores Suaves (this is only in the Spanish SU catalog and I'm a firm believer it needs to be a staple in every stamper's collection), En Francais, On Your Birthday
Inkpads: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Paper: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Glossy White
Punches: Wide Oval, Large Scallop Oval
Ribbon: 3/8" Old Olive Taffeta
Misc.: Watercolor Pencils, Blending Pens, SNAIL, Dimensionals, Sanding Block

For directions on how the Faux Linen look:
SU Demonstrators - you need to see this wonderful how-to video.
Non demonstrators can see directions at Splitcoaststampers.
