Twinkle! A Tissue Mini-Tutorial

Another post!  The challenge is to use tissue and I was inspired to make this star card.  So here is a tutorial for a new technique for you.  Brush on acrylic paint or drag a vibrant ink pad over a piece of white card stock.  Let dry.  Squeeze on any liquid glue that will dry clear and take a piece of plain or patterned tissue paper and crush so that it will have wrinkles.  Apply it to the card stock, let it dry, and trim the edges.  Now you can stamp images or sentiments directly onto the tissue or apply another layer with your sentiment as I did here.  Attach the tissue layer to your card blank and your card is complete.  This particular card has glitter paint as a background for the sentiment (twinkle) and the image (dotted star) both stamped in black.  Hope you enjoyed this informal tutorial and that you will stop in again to see what I am up to.  This card will be uploaded to Friends of Speedy TV at Mark's Finest Papers for this weeks challenge and Through the Craft Room Door--Anything Goes.   See you soon!

Seeing stars, but so beautifully stamped or layered. The tissue paper worked well for you.

Kren, You've really been busy. Gorgeous cards over the last three or four posts! I've been so busy myself, I've missed visiting as lot of my favorite blogs and leaving comments. Sorry to have been MIA for so many days. I'm getting back into my routine now and will be around again.

Twinkle, twinkle little star! This is SO cute, and that's exactly what it reminds me of (that sweet childhood song). Thanks for sharing this with us in our challenge. I'm always delighted by your creations and appreciate your participation in our challenges, Kren. Hope you're having a great week!

This looks so great. I love the look but I always really struggle with "messy" techniques. You just aced it.
