Tissue Paper Technique

Hello,
Time does fly.  It is March already!

Don't you just love this soft look?  It is so simple to create this look yet  the result is outstanding, well at least for me.



This is called the tissue paper technique.  First you will stamp the image on a light card stock.  Then crumble a piece of tissue paper, unfold and smooth out the tissue paper.  I sprayed a little spray adhesive on the card stock and place the tissue paper on it.  Fold or trim the access tissue paper and you are done.

Until next time.

Neat idea! I've seen the faux linen done where you stamp on the tissue, crumple, unfold and glue to cardstock -- but haven't seen it done this way before!
Thanks for sharing.

I do love the soft look on these fabulous cards. However, a lot of patience is needed for images such as these and you did a great job.
