I wanted to have another go at the Faux Silk technique which is this months challenge at Technique Time Tuesday and wanted to do something other than a background. So I thought of clothing and the Wild Rose Studio stamp Mia in Kimono came to mind. I used red tissue paper and stamped her with Versamark and embossed her with Stampendous Jewelled Gold powder. I wasn't sure if this would work but it was fine. I then stamped her again with Memento and coloured her with Promarkers then cut out her dress, parasol and flower and paper pieced them on top. I had to stamp the hands a third time to go on top of the kimono. I used another panel of red tissue and stamped it using Versmark and a stamp from Stampin Up's Hopeful Thoughts set and again embossed with the gold powder. I've also used a piece of gold mirror card and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Daisy pattern folder. The sentiment is from the WRS Mia in Kimono set and stamped in Brilliance Rocket Red and matted onto gold card. If you want to have a go at this technique, pop over to Technique Time Tuesday where Mynnette has a great video tutorial
I'm also entering this into the Quirky Crafts Challenge which is "It's a Quirky Small World" and the Paper Piecing challenge at C.R.A.F.T.
