Stamp Something Challenge 3

Good morning! Well today is Friday which means another great Stamp Something Challenge! This weeks theme is "Faux Somethings". So anything faux goes. Theres faux silk, leather, metal, stitching, shaving cream, linen, the list goes on. Go check out the Resources section of SCS and you'll find tutorials. I decided to finally give the Faux Silk technique a try and I'm so glad I did! I love the look of it, and I can't believe how easy it was!

I'm really happy with how this card came out. The main panel and the scallop all have glue dots under them since the ribbon is so puffy.
-Stamps-Artfully Asian and Always
-Paper-Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock; Pretty in Pink DSP.
-Ink-Black Staz-on
-Accessories-Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Basic Black markers; Scallop punch, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches, Flirty ribbon originals (retired), glue dots and Basic Black grosgrain.
