Hi there! This month's Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge was to use tissue in some way on your card or project! I didn't really do anything out of the ordinary, but it was out of the ordinary for me! I'm not really a technique kind of gal, but I decided to give the faux silk technique a try when making this card!
I just received my PTI order on Friday and in it was the beautiful Background Basics: Flower Power. I inked up one of the backgrounds with Orange Zest ink and stamped it on the tissue that the stamp set was wrapped in and glued it down to a piece of PTI white cs and then used a 1 3/8" square punch and punched out nine squares. The sentiment was stamped in Dark Chocolate, cut out with a Labels 10 nestie, and then embossed with the Picnic Plaid Impression Plate. I used the Butterfly die to cut out many layers of tissue and then stamped the floral patterned butterfly from Butterfly Dreams in Orange Zest on the top layer. I finished it off with a Making Memories decorative brad. I used the ruffled ribbon technique that I have come to LOVE with Orange Zest Saddle Stitch Ribbon. The embossed scallops were done with an EK Success border punch. The base of the card is Dark Chocolate, but looks black in the pic! The finished card is 5x5.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great evening!
