Hello. I am just recycling tissue paper today. I have seen backgrounds with tissue paper and it provides so much texture to a card. I have wanted to try it and am so glad I did.
Now I have seen distress ink used to color the tissue paper but I did not know if watercolors would work with it also.
I started by crumpling up my tissue paper and glueing it on the cardstock. A sheet of tissue paper makes a LOT of backgrounds and patience to let it dry completely once glued on the cardstock is needed. Then I took a paint brush, water and aqua colors and smeared it on the stamp. Be careful and do not get it to wet. It stamped leaving the images on the left. While that was drying, I stamped and fussy cut my flowers and leaves. Then I added brown flock to the center of the flower. That adds lots of texture too when you only work with basically one color..shades of blue. A ribbon was added and the completed front panel was popped up on white cardstock. I needed a thank you card and decided to stamp the sentiment in brown to match the center of the flowers.
