Hi there, crafting friends! Have you ever worked with tissue paper in any of your card projects? Facial tissue, wrapping tissue, even bathroom tissue? I never have......until today. That was this week's challenge at Stamp TV.
I chose to use white wrapping tissue paper in my project. Never having done this before, I found a few videos demonstrating how it's done. Here's a link to one of the tissue technique videos.
I selected a rose image from GKD Pressed Flowers and stamped it on the tissue paper with GKD Peach Belini ink. Next, I used an outline image of the rose from GKD A Year of Flowers and stamped it over the image on the tissue paper using Memento Potter's Clay ink. I added a stem and leaves from the same sets using the same method, stamping with Memento Bamboo Leaves and GKD Grass Green inks. My sentiment is from GKD Flowers Bloom and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Having completed the stamping, in the next step I crumpled the tissue and then opened it up and gently adhered it to a white panel without smoothing it out. Any excess on the edges was cut off. This created that wonderful looking texture. To make the rose flower really stand out, I repeated the technique on another piece of tissue paper, cut out the image and then adhered it with dimensionals over the rose on my panel.
To complete my project, the focal panel was adhered to a layer of GKD Tomato Soup card stock which had been embossed with a textured linen embossing folder and then adhered to my base card which I prepared in white. I just love how this turned out. The texture the tissue paper created looks like an embossed background. I will have to use this technique more often.
Thanks for coming by! Don't be afraid to try this technique. It is not difficult and really a great way to add a little something extra to your card.
Til next time, make it a great day!
