Tissue Paper and Kraft Card Stock
Joan Ervin posted some wonderful cards using the technique of "stamping on tissue" yesterday morning and you can see her beautiful creations Here. I had stamped on tissue paper before but only on white. I could hardly wait to get in my craft room and play with the technique.
When I was going through my store of tissue paper I found this beautiful patterned tissue paper.
So I cut a piece off and wadded it up tightly and then opened carefully so it wouldn't tear. I cut a piece of white card stock, smeared it with glue and placed the wrinkled paper over the card stock. I pressed it on to the card stock but didn't smooth it down too much because I wanted it to stay wrinkled and not become too smooth.
I stamped and embossed the large canvas stripe image over the pp. Cut a piece of green card stock and used a fiskars border punch to form a decorative edge. Cut the small green and kraft card stock pieces with 2 nestabilities, stamped the sentiment, and finished by layering it on kraft card stock.
Thanks Joan, you really did inspire me and I bet I am not the only one :)
Have a great day everyone and keep your eyes open, there is wonderful inspiration all around!
Thanks for visiting!
