PTI MIM: Tissue Paper




Well, this was an interesting challenge for me... I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out, but in the end I really liked the results.  I made an easel card (you can google easel card tutorial) out of Rustic Cream cardstock and use Road Trip stamp set and paper.  Then, I added in a bit of Botanical Silhouettes.  I didn't have Melon Berry ink, so I mixed some inks to create the illusion.  Then, added in some distressing and sewing and even a few diecuts to create some additional interest.  Finally, I covered it with the tissue paper (and yea for running it through your die cut machine- that is a must!).  Then, more distressing, restamping the sentiment and adding a few more things to balance it all out and voila. :)  It was done!

Enjoy!

Beautiful! I love how the tissue paper softened the pattern paper colours. Road Trip is my new favourite paper, so I'm excited to see how great it looks with this technique. Thanks for the inspiration!
