Faux Silk Technique Challenge at SCS: For you Greeting Card

This card was made for the TLC332 challenge over at SCS.  The challenge was to use the Faux Silk technique.  To do this, you use tissue paper as the stamping medium.  I originally tried to use the SC340 Sketch challenge as well, but made some significant changes, so I'm not sure it it still counts!  :0)

 The flowers and bird with sentiment were stamped onto white tissue paper.  I set the images with a heat gun.

 I mounted each stamped image onto white cardstock for more stability in manipulating them, and then I distressed the images with a lighter brown than the Chocolate Chip I used in stamping.
 I used my Nestabilities for the scallop circle and the circle with the bird and sentiment.
 The colors are Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze.
 Here is an up close look at the bird and sentiment.
One more final look.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!
