Over at Perfectly Rustics, the challenge this fortnight is to try a new technique. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2015/04/20/prdc-no-46-new-technique/)

As I mentioned in my previous two posts, one of the techniques I recently discovered online was making a tissue paper background.  On my first card, I stamped and then inked my background.  For my second attempt, I used the tissue paper technique on the panel from which I die cut my focal images.  On that project, I used tissue paper that was already colored.

For this project, I started by stamping the “Silhouette Bouquet” stamp by I Brake for Stamps and the sentiment from the Gina K Designs “With Sympathy Duo” stamp set (retired?) with jet black Stazon ink onto a piece of white tissue paper.  I crumpled up the piece of tissue paper, covered a piece of white card stock with Ranger Multi Medium (Matte) using a foam paint brush, placed the flattened, wrinkled tissue paper on the adhesive-covered card stock and patted down.  I cut the edges that extended over the card stock with my paper trimmer and then applied a top coat of the multi medium to seal it. (HERE is one of the video tutorials I watched before creating my project.)

I added black enamel dots by Teresa Collins to the panel once it was dry.  Then, I mounted the finished panel on black card stock and then a white card base.

Using the same procedure but different stamps, I created a second black and white card.

The stamp sets I used for this one were Gina K “Many Wishes” (retired?) and “Sweet Tweets” (retired?) for the sentiment. The ribbon is by Offray.

(I’d like to try this again at some point using multiple colors for my images as was demonstrated in the video I referenced above.  Also, she used dye inks which I’d also like to try.  They are so much easier to clean up and I have many more color options.  I’m just not sure if the ink will run with the multi medium that I used instead of the glue stick.)

Now it’s your turn!  Create a project using a technique you haven’t tried before and show it to us over at Perfectly Rustics!  I can’t wait to see what technique you use and what you create!

Thanks for checking out my card project!
