tissue paper on acetate

I never made it to the game, but CAS Mix Up had a fun technique in the July challenge - using tissue paper. In various ways actually.

Now I'm a big one on using up leftovers as you know. I often reach for scrap or toilet or tissue paper to mop up leftover ink when I'm doing a technique. And I really love Loll T.'s idea of adhering it to acetate and die cutting it.

Did you see my Spotlight post over at STAMPlorations two weeks ago - Water Bleaching Distress Oxides? Well I had a blob of leftover ink on my craft mat during my project and tissue paper came to the rescue. This week's Spotlight post - The Joys of Tissue Paper - explained how I made a card with it. And today's post uses up the last bit of the tissue paper/acetate. And watercolored tissue paper!

Whew! Ready?


I attached (with multi medium matte) the last bit of torn tissue paper (mopped up Wilted Violet, Broken China and Iced Spruce Distress Oxides with it) to a card stamped with a freebie from Sweet Stamp Shop. Adhered a frame (Simply Graphic Rectangles) and outline dragonfly (CUTplorations Dragonfly Layering) cut from hammered gold CS. This die is new to me. I love it.


Then I glued on the tissue paper/acetate solid dragonfly. Voila! If you haven't tried this technique yet, trust me you're gonna love it!

See ya next week.
