Loving the CAS Mix Up Tissue Challenge :-)

I have been so inspired by our July CAS Mix Up Tissue Challenge!

Here is my 5th card for the challenge! Using Stamping + Stamped tissue paper + Die Cuts

Plus Close Up of Dazzling Diamond Glitter!

I used the stamping on tissue paper technique on my 5th card.  I stamped my STAMPlorations Trendy Spring Blooms flowers using Distress Oxide Inks onto the white tissue paper.  But then decided to scrunch up the tissue for more texture.  Of course, that covered up the detail of the flowers,  but I still got artsy color spots that sort of looked like flowers.

Next I painted Gel Medium onto my die cut acrylic sheet sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds and trimmed the edges of tissue.  Let dry.  Very sparkly and pretty.

I then die cut my CUTplorations Trendy Spring Bloom Dies using Thick Whisper White CS and attached with fine tip glue pen.  I liked the spots of color behind the die cuts.

I finished my CAS design by adding a  Perfect Plum Cordinations CS frame, die cut frame and strip of Washi Tape.  Then a die cut hello, which had 2 layers.  Finally popping up my angled main image with fun foam.  

Another fun tissue paper technique to share :-)   Be sure and check out the fabulous samples by our DT and our amazing Guest Designer Sue (Sue's Card Craft).  You still have until July 24th to join the CAS Mix Up tissue paper fun!  Happy tissue paper stamping my friends.  Hugs..

Nancy, great splash of colours on the white and love all the sparkle with the dazzling diamonds. Tissue paper has been such an amazing medium to work with and bonus it's often free in packing.

So artsy with the splats of colour, Nancy. And I love the sparkled from the dazzling diamonds. Playing with tissue paper this month has been so fun!! :) xx

The splats are actually stamped flower images the turned into more like splats when I scrunched up my tissue. I agree...our tissue paper month has been soooo fun! Hugs
