I will post directions for faux silk right here. Cut a piece of tissue paper a bit bigger than the cs you plan to cover. Press tissue paper into inkpads to cover. Wrinkle tissue paper and flatten out. Cover cs with elmers glue , Press wrinkled tissue into glue on cs wrapping overhang to back and glue down. Direct to paper with a darker ink to show wrinkles of tissue. Let dry then layer your card.
A few years ago, a demo should this similar technique. Only she used the liquid glue. When she adhered the tissue paper, the glue came through allowing her to sprinkle with Diamond Dust. It was very striking.
