Faux Technique Time over at JUGS


Happy Holiday Season to you all,

Today over at Just Us Girls...the very talented Jughead Sue V. has a great technique for us

to try!  It is called the Faux Technique.  Although I have heard of it, I’ve never tried it before.

It was a lot of fun and a little intimidating at first and then there was no stopping me!  I wanted to keep it

Christmas related this week, but was getting a little tired of the same color pallet,

so I opted to make a card with non-traditional Christmas colors.

What do you think?  Pink and Black work okay for you?

(In the photo it looks peach…but trust me it’s pink along with the tissue paper)

Isn’t Sue’s card amazing? You can really see her crinkled tissue.

 However, on my card I got carried away and covered to much of it.

 Here is a secret……wait to crinkle your tissue till all your ink is dry

then you won’t have to cover up so many of your blotchy mistakes….LOL

When I first stamped the ornaments I wasn’t feeling it, but it the end it came together just fine!

Card details:

Cardstock is all Stampin Up

Black ink is Stazon.

Stamps: Ornaments are from Verve.

The sentiment is from Gina K designs.

The little flower looking thing on the tag…who knows?  Dollar bin at Michael’s

Made the tag myself and paper pierced it.

The die cut is from MFT.

Some pop dots, ribbon, twine and a button finishes it off!

Now that I am looking at the photo on my computer…I should have added some bling!

Head on over to Just Us Girls and join us won’t you?  The team and our guest Designer

Jan Del Bone have made some really great cards!

Have an awesome day!
