Tissue Paper Watercolouring Video on SCS

Looking for the Twelve Tags of Christmas event??

Hi everyone.  I'm so excited that my Tissue Paper Watercolouring Video is being added to the video tutorials at Splitcoast Stampers!  It's such an honour!  Thanks so much Dina!

I wanted to make a tissue paper watercolouring card to launch at the same time.  I used one of the tissues left from when I made the video several months ago.  Makes a fast and easy card having a stash on hand. :)

I actually made two cards and they are from the same piece of tissue.  One I paired with white die-cuts, the other with gold.  They look SO different!!

The white diecut flower with frame lets the watercoloured background be the star.  Love this combination of purple, yellow, orange, green, and a bit of gold.  I added a simple gold stamped sentiment banner at the bottom to finish.  If you want to know how I made the watercolour background using tissue paper, please watch the video ... everything is explained.

Here's the second card I made ... using a piece of the same watercoloured background, but this time adding a gold flower and frame.  This pretty Wildflower die is a gift from a dear friend.
I used Delicata Gold reinker to add a bit of gold to the tissue paper, so wanted to match that with the rest of the elements of my card.  A frame was cut from white card stock and swiped with the same gold (using an ink pad this time), as well as stamping the sentiment.

I hope you'll give this fun technique a try.  Makes great backgrounds without having to use watercolour paper.  I have also stenciled over tissue paper backgrounds using two different techniques --- sponging with ink and embossing paste.  Both work great with these backgrounds.

I'm adding both of these cards to The Flower Challenge #14 - CAS.

  11. Congratulations on having your video on SCS - it is one of your best and is such a great technique. I love both of these cards - nice to see what a difference it makes just changing the colour of the die cut. I think the white one is my favourite as I love the stronger contrast with the background.
