TLC437 Tissue Stamping

Hello everyone...It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and I have a fun technique for you suggested by Sue (bensarmom) called *Tissue Stamping*!!

There are several ways you can do this:

1. You will need tissues (Puffs, Kleenex, etc.), a light, medium, and dark shade of each color you are going to use, and a solid stamp.
2. Ball up your tissue like a sponge and starting with the lightest color, pounce the tissue ball onto the ink pad and then pounce it on your stamp.
3. Now do the same think with the medium color using a new tissue and then do the same think with the darkest color along one side for the shading.
4. Huff on stamp to re-moisten and stamp.

You can also:

1. Use tissue to sponge the background
2. Use tissue to color line stamps, cut them out, and adhere to your project.

Here is a video on tissue stamping that Sue sent me by Art and Soul 

My card features stamps from Taylored Expressions A Day in Paradise...the sail boat which is a solid stamp was tissue stamped with Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Real was cutout and popped up on foam dots. The chairs which are line stamps were stamped with Elegant Eggplant and tissue stamped with Lavender Lace, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant.....they were then cutout and popped up on foam dots. The sky was tissue stamped with Summer Sun, Marigold Morning, Pumpkin Pie, and Pool Party....a punched circle was taped to the background prior to adding the color to create the sun. The ocean is a torn piece of Pool Party and the sand is Crumb Cake that was torn and embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder. The sentiment is from the same set and the twine is the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by...hope you can join us for this weeks TLC!!!
