Tip / Technique : Stamping on Tissue Paper
I had so much fun making this! I purchased one of those $1 tims from Michaels that already had the black and off white florish design you see in the background. Did you know you can stamp and emboss on tissue paper. Thought I'd give it a try, and it worked!!! I painted a light layer of gesso over the top of the tin. I stamped the heart, "love", birds, and butterly on tissue paper with pigment ink, and embossed. I actually stamped the "love" first and then mask it off, stamped the heard and "forever" on the same peice of tissue. I cut the tissue paper around the images but not close, because I wanted to tear it. I painted water around the endges so that the tissue would tear and leave a distressed edge. I used the gesso to adhere the tissue images and repeated the same steps with the birds and butterfly. I stamped around the edges with a swirl and red pigment ink. The other qoutes and cupid are rub-ons and the glittery heart is a brad I cut the prongs off of!

I think the rub-ons are Basic Grey, but the package is long gone, these are really old.
