It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month the challenge was to create something using tissue paper. Tissue paper? Surely I have plenty of that...oh wait, I guess not. When I raided my stash today I discovered I only had two options: plain white or pink, blue and green polka dots. Hmmm...so I went with the polka dots, not quite sure I could pull it off...
I think I like it. Maybe. Or it might just be a hot mess. Either way, I'm going with it. Especially since I'm cutting it very close to the deadline tonight!
I used my classic scalloped circle dies from Spellbinders to cut several layers of tissue in two different colors. I then used some embroidery thread and a needle to make a knot in the center to hold the whole thing together, like a big button. Then I started twisting, crumpling until I got something that resembled a flower. The cool thing about working with tissue? The more you crumple it up, the better it looks!
And another thing I discovered? I love Fresh Snow stamped on Raspberry Fizz! The leaves were stamped with Fresh Snow, but when it dries it almost looks like a light pink. And Spring Moss with Raspberry Fizz is great, too! Why haven't I done that before?!? Anyway...I embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder so that it would really pop against the card base. Now, I'm not sure how in the heck I'll mail this card...it might just have to wait for an "in person" occasion!
Now I'm off to hop along with the rest of you! Thanks for stopping by!
