SUO180 Celebrate- Another Watercolor Tissue Paper Experiment

Hi Friends!   

I have a few birthdays to celebrate in the fall and I decided to play around with the watercolor tissue technique again this time using fall colors (see this post for more details on the technique).

I also will be linking this card to The Paper Players #355Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (Die-Cut, Banner, Birthday) and the Word Art Wednesday#292-#293 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challengesite to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using a silicone craft mat, tap the So Saffron, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink pads, lightly spritz with water, use a plastic spoon or palette knife to stir the ink a bit and lay a piece of tissue paper into the ink.  Gently lift up the paper and use the Heat Tool to dry the sheet.  Apply additional ink as needed and once you are satisfied with the results and the panel is thoroughly dried, adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock, “scrunching” up the tissue as you adhere it to the Whisper White panel.

2). Once the glue has dried, rub a Versamark™ ink pad over the ridges, apply Gold Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

3). Use the Big Shot™ with the Leaflets Framelits™ to cut out the leaf.  Ink the corresponding stamp from Vintage Leaves with Cajun Craze Classic Ink, stamp over the entire leaf (difficult to see in the photo), gently wipe off the ink with a dry paper towel from the embossing and set aside.

4). Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodland Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and adhere to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

5). Loop a bit of Gold Metallic Thread onto the card front and add the die cut leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

6). Heat emboss the sentiment from Beautiful You with Gold Embossing Powder, hand cut the banner points and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

7). Use Clear Wink of Stella® to add shimmer to the birch trees in the background to finish off the card.

Amazing! Your card is so beautiful! I really need to try this technique instead of drooling over yours! :) I love it! TFS!

Oh Julie! That leaf is stunning! I've had my eye on this technique for a while and your examples in the last little while make me even keener to give it a go. The leaf pairs up very well with that embossing folder. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players.
