Hello friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
I experimented with "tissue paper". The kind that you really suppose to use in the box or bag when you're wrapping a gift.
Well, I saw a video where Jennifer McGuire was using the kind that leaves color behind once you put it down, let it dry and remove it.
I had to test out my tissue paper, hoping it would do the same....no, it didn't. Did that stop me? No, it didn't.
- I looked at my art supplies and pulled out the bottle of gesso. I applied some to a piece of Neenah white cardstock, crumble or squashed some light blue tissue paper to it and waited for it to dry.
- I used another piece of Neenah white cardstock , applied yellow gelato ink in the center with a blending brush and blue gelato ink around the yellow. With the blue, I used a crumble piece of tissue paper to make the blue appear as if it had texture....pretty, pretty, pretty!
- The gelato piece was cut down smaller than the tissue piece and placed on top of it. I wanted the tissue piece to show (it has texture).
- I stamped a flower on top of the gelato piece using the Penny Black blooming garden stamp set.
- I used a red and black Crayola marker to color the flower.
- From K & Company empherma, I used one of the small dragonflies to adhere to the card.
- The word "hello" was on the desk, so I adhered that to this card also.
- Various pieces of cardstock that coordinated with the finish piece were layered to the back of it before finally adding the card base.
