HIMCR #98 - Try a New Technique!

This week we played around with the Faux Linen technique.  I have to admit it sounded a bit intimidating until I actually tried it and found that it was easier than I thought.  I really enjoyed it and made several small cards with the technique that I may post another day.

Go over to SplitcoastStampers for the technique tutorial to learn just how easy it is.  Laurie, from Hiding in my Craft Room, has used regular cardstock and found that it worked well so if you don't have glossy cardstock you can still give it a try.  Remember to head back to Hiding in My Craft Room to link us up with your Faux Linen creation!

I used a variety of stamps for this one - the music notes and corner flourish are from Unity Stamp Co. and the bird is from Stampin Up.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage photo for the faux linen.  The sentiment is also from Stampin Up.
