Sabrina offered a technique challenge yesterday for the Ways to Use it Challenge. We were to add watercolor to tissue paper then wrinkle it, glue it to cardstock retaining the wrinkles and emboss the raised, wrinkled areas. Well, at the end of the summer my kids and my foster grandson tie dyed T shirts. That involved lots of paper towels and dye and I just couldn't toss all those cool pieces of toweling!
|Here are my paper towels|
|I pulled apart the two plies and glued the darker piece down onto plain white card stock with Elmer's glue retaining the wrinkles.|
|Here's the first round of embossing by running a Versamark pad over the raised areas and sprinkling pewter embossing powder over it.|
|Went back and added more Versamark and ep|
|Cut the flowers and a branch and used that over a piece of a Gelli print|
|I diecut several dragonflies to use|
|Kept it very simple on this one|
|Shook a silver Sharpie over the punched black circles in the bg|
|Used a Gelli print for the solid dragonfly and overlaid a plain white|
This is a really fun and easy technique that makes great bg pieces or pieces to diecut!
