Hi Stamping Friends.  I started a technique class last week, and thoroughly enjoyed it!  Because I do so many Stamp-A-Stacks, I don't always get to "teach" as much as I would like.  This week we learned three new techniques, and each person received a 6 x 6 photo album, along with instructions to make each one (which they then put in their books).  This is one of the techniques (learned from Stamping School).  It's called faux linen.  It's really difficult to see by the picture, but the white image looks like linen.

The colors are limeade, concord crush (retiring in-color) and white gloss (believe it or not).  The image is from the Very Vintage wheel, and sponged with crumb cake, limeade and concord crush.  The sentiment is from the Perfectly Penned stamp set.  The limeade ribbon is tied with the linen thread to create a double bow.  The pearls are colored with a brown Sharpie marker.  The white just didn't work, but it needed some subtle bling.

If you are in the Milwaukee-Metro area and would like to become a member of our technique club, please email me.  We meet the first Wednesday of each month, and we are looking for a few new members.
