more Tissue Paper Background

Here is another of the Tissue Paper Background atc's for today's atc class, black tissue paper again with silver embossing powder. It has more embossing powder on it as I pushed the black tissue paper down too flat, not really incorrect, just more embossing powder on it than I wanted so the next one I did I pressed the tissue paper down more softly. That picture is in the previous post below. Thanks must go to the awesome Michelle Ward for sending me the HIM stamp in a previous package I received from her! I stamped it with white Stazon onto transparency and cut a section out of the tissue paper and stuck the transparency behind so you could see the plain black background of the black mat board my atc's are always mounted on. The heart is stamped onto white shrink plastic, then shrunk and attached, Ruby Treasure Jewels are rubbed around the edge to give the crimson (blood!) colour.

I decided instead of doing more tissue paper atc's, I should be finishing off my 27 atc's for a technique book swap that's due next week. There are 27 of us are taking part in this, so we'll all end up with a fantastic book of atc's, each showcasing a wonderful technique with instructions listed at the back of the book.

I had taken part in another technique book through Stampgropers (a local Western Australian stamp group) and absolutely loved it! This particular technique book lives at Scraptivate where I work and every customer who looks at it just falls in love with it......AND wants to know when I'm teaching the class so they can make their own! Well, if you have a spare couple of MONTHS!!! lol

Anyway....back to the 27 technique atc's.....I did finish them off, they just needed a word on them. I coloured a piece of chipboard with a brown sharpie and then punched the letters with a metal alphabet punch into the chipboard. Then rubbed Classic Gold Treasure Gold lightly over the top followed by Silver Treasure Gold to give it a metallic look. My technique is Gel Medium Transfer, using Golden Soft Gel (matte) onto book pages.

The tech books etc are addictive aren't they...I know I don't want to miss out especially since I have the others too, I thought the ATC format would be easier...HA! Looking forward to getting one of yours, as always it looks great.

Oh, Kelsey, these make me feel so good! I love beautious things like this. And I love working with tissue paper! It never occurred to me to use embossing.

Tissue on!

Looking forward to seeing this one in the flesh! Can't wait to get my arty fingers on the ATC technique book - glad I got that one out of the way early as the ATC Calender swap deadline is zooming up fast and I've got the dreaded creative block.....arghhh!!

Pre-seasons Cheers!
