I began by stamping a Crafty Individuals picture with a mix of Distress Inks in Forest Moss and Brushed Corduroy on to a piece of white tissue paper. As you are going to crumple the tissue you could recycle some that you may already have. Once the image is dry you crumple it up, then smooth it out a little to leave some creases. Stick this to a piece of white card with a glue stick, don't smooth it out completely as the wrinkles are what gives the impression of silk fabric.
The edges are bound with a DIY version of washi tape, I use microporous surgical tape found in the medicine isle of my local supermarket.
Once I had made my main image I then began to stamp on Kraft card with Archival Ink Coffee using Wild Meadow stamps from Chocolate Baroque.
The image panel is stuck on to the Kraft card and then finished off with some paper flowers that have been in my stash for a couple of years. I'm trying to stop keeping things for 'something else' and use them up. My desk is groaning under the weight of embellishments and papers that are 'too nice to use!'
The flowers are finished with some tiny gems to add a little more sparkle.
I hope you will try this technique and join us with your creations, we'd love to see what you've made. Have a look at the DT cards for more inspiration, they're all quite different with lots of ideas to start you off.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
