French Marigold Tissue Technique Reminder




My CAS Mix Up Tissue Paper Reminder Card


Reminder Close Up


I LOVE this tissue paper technique and now have a stack of backgrounds using different Adirondack Alcohol Ink combos.  You will be seeing more cards in the future :-)

Supplies: Craft non stick mat, Acrylic Sheets..Amazon...007 Clear Craft Plastic 12"x12" 25 sheets..$10.00 (or Window Sheets), Aluminum Foil,  Adirondack Alcohol Inks, Blending Solution and 90% Rubbing Alcohol, White Tissue Paper, Golden's Gel Medium, (or Modge Podge), Sponge Brush, scissors, Dazzling Diamonds glitter (optional)

Step1: cut piece of aluminum foil approximately 8" x11" and lay on craft sheet.

Step 2: drizzle alcohol ink onto foil and spritz with Blending Solution or 90% rubbing alcohol. Alcohol Inks used: Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange and Watermelon.

Step 3: pre-cut acrylic sheets..I used 4" x 4" and 6" x 6" squares.  Smoosh onto spritzed alcohol inks until you are happy with results.  You can spritz more if inks dry too quickly. Lay aside piece to dry with alcohol side UP.   Can add more ink to foil to make more backgrounds.  I ended up with 4 large and 9 small backgrounds.

Do not throw away foil.  Can be used for another technique that I will share in a future post that I learned from my friend Christine :-)

Step 4: When piece dries use foam brush to Paint ON Alcohol Ink Side the  Gel Medium or Modge Podge  (optional..pinch of Dazzling Diamonds or fine glitter to lightly sprinkle onto wet glue) then scrunch up a pre-cut (6x6 or 8x8) White tissue paper and then open tissue leaving the scrunched wrinkles and place over wet glue.  Rub with your hands for good contact.  Turn over piece onto clean paper towel and press more with hands.  Carefully add more glue on edges if necessary.  If glue smudges appear on the acrylic side remove using paper towel and 90% rubbing alcohol.

Step 5: Set aside and let glue dry.  Then trim tissue with your scissors.  Check for more glue smudges and remove with alcohol.  Then you can stamp images or sentiments, etc using Stazon ink.  Other inks tend to smear....wonder how I know that...

Once you get the hang of the steps the technique is so easy and the results soooo beautiful and interesting.

I stamped my new STAMPlorations "French Marigold" flower using my MISTI and Stazon Black ink. Popped up with fun foam ($ store) and glued to SU Basic Black CS for a thin frame.  Then attached to SU Thick Whisper White CS tent fold card base.

I used my brand new Poppystamps "Scribble Thank You" Die,  cutting it out of SU Basic Black CS.

I wish you could see the pretty glitter from the SU Dazzling Diamonds.   The tissue adds a white glow to the background.  So gorgeous in real life.  I hope you get to try the technique too or any tissue paper technique and join the fun at July CAS Mix Up.  There are so many gorgeous samples by our DT and our Guest Designer, Sue (Sue's Card Craft)...plus the Gallery is growing :-) 

Sorry about the long description,  but I have not found a video that really works for this technique.  

Hugs...LOVE the Stained Glass Look of Technique!

  3. Beautiful colors of AI on your acetate Nancy! That big bloom is the perfect stamping over the acetate. The scrunched tissue adds such great texture to the look - and the black framing really defines the image against your card base! Julia xx
