Good afternoon all and welcome to the weekend.
I shared a project last month that my downline Hayley showed us how to make at our monthly shoebox swap. I fell in love with the stamping on tissue effect so decided to adapt her card for my swaps for an upcoming Stampin' Up! Regional event in Telford (one of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator- meeting up and swapping ideas with other Demonstrators from around the country. If you fancy coming along too there is till time to sign up as a Demo and book your place on the event. Registration closes on Friday April 26th. Click here to order your Starter Kit and start your Stampin' Up!journey. Drop me a line and I'll happily chat through joining my team and getting started with Stampin' Up, or see the 'Join My Team' tab at the top of my blog).
So for this weeks Thursday technique (on a Friday) I am sharing how to create the crumpled tissue effect. I won't share my completed project just yet as the Telford event isn't for a couple of weeks and I don't want to ruin the surprise for all the Demos I might swap with. The component parts of my project are above.
I stamped the larger butterfly from Papillon Pot Pouri in Chocolate Chip on to a small piece of white tissue paper. Once the ink was completely dry I then screwed and crumpled the tissue up into a small ball. You then cover your piece of Newsprint DSP with Anywhere Glue Stick and flatten the tissue onto the DSP. I tried to centre each butterfly and you don't flatten it completely to give a textured and raised effect to your image.
Here is the finished tissue paper effect. You get a lovely crinkled faux suede effect. I finished my image with Soft Suede daubered round the image for an aged vintage effect. This image and technique puts me in mind of the old museum displays with mounted insects and butterflies.
I hope you enjoyed todays quick 'how to technique'. Pop back on May 11th and I'll share the completed project with you ;0)
