Technique Tuesday -- Bleeding Tissues Part 2

Hi Everyone! Have you ever seen something and said, "why didn't I think of that?"  Well, this is why I have called my technique today -- Bleeding Tissues Part 2.  Back in the Fall I did a technique at Sparkle N Sprinkle on bleeding tissues where I just tore the tissue paper and layered the pieces to form a background. Today I am showing a little twist on that. I think you will like this new twist. I also used our new Bird Song stamp set on my card. I love birds, so this is one of my favorite sets!

Supplies needed:
  1. white glossy card stock
  2. flower dies
  3. various colors of bleeding tissue papers ( the colors bleed when wet )
  4. water spritzer
  5. heat tool
First cut out the flowers from the tissue paper using flower dies. This time I am using cut out shapes instead of tearing the tissue paper in pieces.

Lay a the flowers one at a time on the glossy card stock and spritz the flowers once or twice. Let them dry a little and finish drying using a heat tool. The flowers will lift right off.

Now you will have a bright flower background.

I also experimented using watercolor paper and regular card stock. They each gave a different look. On the watercolor paper the flowers are more subtle and would make a nice soft background.

Here is the background on regular card stock. It really turned out interesting with some outlines around the flowers.

I hope you will do some experimenting of your own with this technique. I had never thought of cutting out shapes first. I know this would look great using leaves and Fall colors for a Fall card.  There are many possibilities! I decided to use the bright background on the glossy card stock for my card above. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
