{Spotlight Project} Maria Spotlights the Joys of Tissue Paper


Hello STAMPlorations friends! I'm going all CAS on you today, basically just using up some leftovers from my last Spotlight project where I played with Distress Oxides. Did you see that? Notice the butterfly on today's card.


Here's the story. BTW, credit for this tissue paper on acetate technique goes to the technique goddess Loll T.


STEP 1
Gathered my supplies. Buttercups and Butterflies, Flutter Zen 1 Layering die, glue, a makeup sponge, acetate and that scrap of tissue paper I'd used to dab up leftover Distress Oxides. You might remember the second photo - it's from my last Spotlight project.





STEP 2
I spread glue all over the acetate with the sponge and then pressed the tissue paper onto it using my hands. Forgot to take a photo, but I splattered some Heidi Swapp gold spray ink on it. Let it dry.



STEP 3
Planned the layout of my card then stamped the buttercup and sentiment.


Bent the die cut butterfly slightly and adhered it with multi medium matte. Voila!



This makes my CAS-loving heart happy. Are you more of a CAS or mixed media person? Isn't it fun to be able to combine the two?

Remember if you try out any of the techniques, like die cutting tissue paper, from our spotlight posts, don't forget to hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase.

Tschüss,
Maria
