Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique

On Tuesday, at our Team Meeting, the  Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique was demonstrated, and each team member had an opportunity to make several samples. It was a bit messy but I provided gloves - and a good time was had by all.

Instead of using stamping pads I decided to use 3 colours of re-inkers. Tissue paper used was ordinary white wrapping tissue paper but you could use the tissue paper that comes with the Window Sheets.

I used the tutorial found on Splitcoaststampers here

Here are some of the samples I made:

I found that I liked some white space in my samples.  You will also notice that I crumpled all of my samples up to provide extra texture and when they were  uncrumpled  I embossed them with gold or copper embossing powder.

Some samples I made into cards:

After adding the watercoloured tissue paper to Whisper White card stock, rather than adding Window Sheets over it as suggested in the tutorial, I die cut the Rose Wonder die and adhered it directly over top of the sample.  Colours used to create the background:  Pool Party, Marina Mist, and Tempting Turquoise.

For this card I added a piece of Window sheet to the die cut rectangle frame and black embossed the tree from "Lovely as a Tree" on it.  This art piece was then added to the Tissue Paper background and matted it with Basic Black.

A wonderful Gift from my Downline

I held our monthly Team Meeting on Tuesday and one of my downline instead of bringing swap cards, made an Advent Calendar out of stacked 2 by 2 boxes for each of us - 4 in total.  It must have taken her hours!!  I was utterly amazed!!  And she did such a wonderful job packaging it I didn't have the heart to take it out its wrapping.

I took a picture of 2 of them as I am holding on to a member who missed the meeting.

Each box is decorated on 4 sides with DSP and because she didn't have the numbers framelits she wrote the day on each box.  Interspersed among the boxes are some ornaments.

By the way, there is a treat in each box.

Thanks so much Deb!!!
