Faux Silk Technique

This card uses the "Faux Silk" technique, which is very easy to do.

First I stamped images (all by Non Sequitur) onto a piece
of tissue paper and then crumpled it up....creating wrinkles.
After smoothing the tissue paper out I adhered it to some cardstock,
leaving some wrinkles remaining to imitate silk.
Then I trimmed and layered, added a scrap of netting and a metal 
frame etc.
The result looks (IRL) like a swatch of silk, even feels like silk!
