Technique Tuesday -- Bleeding Tissues

Hi and welcome once again to Technique Tuesday at Sparkle N Sprinkle. This technique is great for a Fall background. I hope you enjoy trying it!

Supplies needed:
  1. several colors of tissue paper -- only a few will bleed. I used a brand called Bleeding Art Tissue
  2. white glossy cardstock
  3. water spritzer
Take the tissue and tear small pieces of each color.

Spritz the glossy card stock with water and randomly layer on the pieces if tissue making sure you cover the whole card.

Spritz over the top of the tissue pieces and let them air dry. Peal pieces off the card and you will  have a neat background.

I stamped the Swirl Oak tree onto my background with permanent ink and cut it out using a scallop die. I also made another card using the negative.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the technique and that you will try this on some Fall cards! Have a wonderful day!


Sparkle N Sprinkle supplies used:
  1. Swirly Oak 3278-410G
  2. Celestial glitter G1031
