My July stamp clubs made this Softly Sketched Faux Charcoal Technique card this month.  This Faux Charcoal Technique is straight out of the Stampin’ Up! catalog and super simple, but also a cool effect.  Sometimes, those designers sneak in an easy technique right in the pages of the catalog.

This is the first time I’ve used the Twisted Rope 3D embossing folder…love it!  Besides the Softly Sketched stamp set, several other stamp sets in the current catalog would look great with this Faux Charcoal Technique including all the hand-drawn style stamps.  Plus, all catalog stamp sets are 15% off today.  Here’s the technique sample and instructions for our technique journals.
