A Tissue!!


Hello,   Happy New Year and thanks for visiting and no I don't have a cold! 'A Tissue' is the title of the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and we would like to see you USE tissue in your project, not to sneeze into!!!

I've used 3 kinds of tissue on my card, the base was gift wrap tissue that I've had for a little while just waiting for the right time to be used, alright, it had been hoarded!  My image was stamped onto tissue and then glued onto a printable canvas paper which has a rather shiny finish that I don't really like - so a good way of using this up.

The flowers and leaves were all cut from a napkin and glued around the oval frame, after I'd used Crackle paste and Walnut stain Distress ink over most of the card.

The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful inspiration for you,so please pop over here, you won't be disappointed.

Well, that's it - holidays all over and back to normal and hopefully normal blogging and crafting will be resumed.

Best wishes for the new year!
What a beautiful vintage number. I've actually got plenty of paper napkins, before I started with stamping and card making I was into decoupaging wooden elements and boxes, something I haven't done for several years. I've never tried using paper napkins on cards yet, it's a great idea.
