I’m still in love with the “Oh So Eclectic” Bundle (145356) by Stampin’ Up! and this week I have teamed it up with a new (for me) technique Faux Linen.
This card I have made as part of the Global Design Project Colour Challenge #97
The Faux Linen technique uses the Stampin’ Up! Glossy White Cardstock 144241 and some sandpaper!
I really like the effect…its a bit like that old linen chair that Grandma had in the lounge, a bit worn and well loved and oh so comfortable……
Splitcoast Stampers have a great Tutorial HERE and video showing how you to can achieve this effect.
The colours I used in this card are from this weeks GDP Challenge..
