Rainbow Poinsettia

Meet today's card.
A fun one filled with lots of colours thanks to the Bleeding Tissue Paper technique.
I easily found the tissue paper on; a large package of it for a very reasonable price.
I love how this turned out...bright and happy and festive.
So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock as my card panel.  I tore the Bleeding Tissue Paper into strips and laid them over the panel, then sprayed them down with some water and set aside to dry.  
  • **Helpful hint....let the tissue dry on it's own so the colour will transfer.  If you go to lift it and some of the color still hasn't gone onto your cardstock, just add more water.**
  • When the tissue was totally dry, I removed the pieces to reveal the beautiful colour blends.
  • Next, I placed the dried piece into my Misti and stamped this new to me gorgeous stamp called Poinsettia Collage from Impression Obsession and stamped it with some Versafine Clair.
  • To help the image pop, I clear heat embossed the image, then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I cut the panel down a bit and mounted it onto some red cardstock and then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I nearly bought some bleeding art tissue a while ago but then didn't but after seeing this beautiful card I wish I had. The poinsettia is beautiful and love the extra writing and what looks like postmarks, but maybe they're not, but whatever it is a brilliant card Karen. x
