Splitcoast's TLC Challenge - Stamping on Tissue Paper

Hello everyone!! I am the hostess this week for Splitcoast's Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC292) ...today we are going to stamp on tissue paper....it really adds a lot of texture to your artwork!! I bet you have some of that crumpled up tissue paper in the bottom of an old gift bag....go dig it out and lets have a little fun!!!
The first step is to spray it with water...I mixed a little Perfect Pearls powder in the water so mine would have a little shimmer. You could also mix a little Pearl Ex in the water or spritz with Glimmer mist...what ever flips you skirt!!
Dry the tissue paper with a heat tool...

I colored the Rubbernecker Wildflower stamp with Old Olive and Ruby Red markers...


and stamped on the dried tissue paper...the image was stamped off three times.

When the ink was dry I cut it out with a round Nestabilies.....

A background layer the same size as the tissue paper image was cutout so the tissue paper layer will show up....the light colored tissue paper looks best with a light background layer.

Use a glue stick to adhere the tissue paper layer to the background layer.....

Now it's ready......

Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Wildflower
Paper: White, Riding Hood Red, Basic Grey's June Bug and Offbeat
Ink: Ruby Red and Old Olive Markers
Accessories: Wrinkled Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Nestabilities, Spellbinders Scalloped Die, Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug Folder, Tissue Paper


Now we will use a piece of brown tissue paper.....spray it...

dry it.....

stamp it with white ink.....



how cool is that!!!
Recipe:
Paper: Vanilla, Stampin Up dp
Ink: PTI's Perfect Match Fresh Snow, Memento Rich Cocoa for the stamped weeds images on the background vanilla layer
Accessories: Ivory Silk Ribbon, ZVA Pearl Flourish, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

I love this technique so much that I just had to make another card using pink tissue paper!!! Memento Rich Cocoa was used with the Rubbernecker Wildflower image.

Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Weeds and Sentiment from Rubbernecker's Party Time set
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Webster's Pages Brown Bloomer, Stampin Up! Leaf Die, TH Brick Embossing Folder, Nestabilities

I hope you found a little inspiration here today...now go dig out the tissue paper and stamp away!!!

Very inspired! I have stamped on tissue paper before but never have wet it first and adding shimmer is a great idea! And I have always used white never colored paper, so looking forward to trying that too.
