PTI Make It Monday #18 - Tissue Paper Texture

This week's Make It Monday technique was brought to us by Betsy Veldman. You can read all the info and watch the video here.

My background is Pink Gingham tissue by International Greetings USA. I couldn't get it to adhere well, so I finally ran the cardstock panel through my Xyron machine and then placed the crinkled paper on it. The little wrinkles after running it through my Cuttlebug are quite pretty but did not photograph well. The bottom strip is Hybiscus Burst Bitty Dot covered with white tissue. It muted the color and made a great match with my little fabric flowers.


The watering can was cut with the Garden Variety die out of a scrap of 12x12 paper that has a texture that reminds me of brushed aluminum. I didn't attempt to stamp it, just colored it with Copics and adhered with pop dots. I also used the new Picket Fence die. My rose bush is made with PTI Leaf Ribbon and flowers snipped from trim purchased from Christopher Pines on Etsy. The butterfly is from Butterfly Dreams and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Garden Variety. The sprinkles of water are Martha Stewart Carrara Marble Coarse glitter sprinkled on dots of Zig 2 Way Glue.



I hope you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are greatly appreciated.

The glittery water droplets are priceless and the leaf ribbon and flowers make a pretty 'rose garden'.

All kinds of goodies in this card! I never thought of using the xyron to adhere the tissue paper. I made such a mess with mine using white glue. And I love the paper on the watercan! Overall, a stunning card!
