CARD STOCK AND TISSUE PAPER.
I was visiting a friend of mine last week and she was playing with card stock and tissue paper. The work she was doing was just beautiful and I decided it was time for me to try this out.
As you can see by the picture below all you need is card stock, tissue paper and craft glue stick.
Make sure that the tissue paper you tear off and scrunch up like the purple piece in the picture is bigger than the piece of card stock you want to put it onto. The reason being once it looks like the gold tissue paper in the picture it will be smaller.Once you have scrunched it up then open it out carefully. Just like the gold piece pictured. The more you open it out the less wrinkles.
Cover your card stock with glue making sure you get to the edges and the hole section you want is covered good.
Press down in the corners to hold. You can now either cover with a piece of paper or turn it over. Pat down gently. If you pat or rub too hard you will not get the textured look. It is a case of working it till you get the look you need.
I have included some cards and a layout that I have done this week to show how it can look.
I hope you like them.
The layout has the white tissue paper on it which had lovely little speckles of glitter on it.
I place it over bright red card stock. I hope this close up lets you see the effect a little better.
On this card I used a soft purple. I love purple and pink. I think its because I have two boys and it is nice to use girl colors and not boy colors. LOL. Any color tissue paper works.
This card I made with a special girlfriend of mine in mind. I used a light blue tissue paper over white card stock. The flowers were a rub-on. I placed it on cream card stock and cut it out. Then using dimensions tabs put it on the card. I love cutting things out and it is just another way of using rub-ons
Don't forget to keep your tissue paper from your presents and flowers now. There is a use for it. Not forgetting that when you buy tissue paper to wrap a present there is a use for the left over. Just head straight to your craft room and away you go.
I hope you have enjoyed reading and looking at what I have been up to. Don't forget our latest challenge. It sure is a fun one. If you haven't had a go at tissue paper, give it a try.
Till next time......Happy Crafting.
