Default TLC437 ~ Tissue stamping ~ (7/08/13)

Hello everyone.....It's my turn to host this weeks Technique Lovers Challenge and I have a fun technique for you suggested by Sue (bensarmom) called
* Tissue Stamping *!!


There are several ways you can do this :


1. You will need tissues (Puffs, Kleenex, etc.), a light, medium, and dark shade of each color you are going to use, and a solid stamp
2. Ball up your tissue like a sponge and starting with the lightest color, pounce the tissue ball onto the ink pad and then pounce it on your stamp.....just like sponging but with a tissue.
3. Now do the same think with the medium color using a new tissue and then do the same thing with the darkest color along one side for the shading .
4. Huff on the stamp to re-moisten and then stamp .


Using the tissue rather than a sponge adds a lot more texture and interest!!!


You can also:


1. Use tissues to sponge the background
2. Use tissue to color line stamps, cut them out, and adhere to your project .


Sue's Sample

Thanks Joan. Here's mine.

One of the girls in my stamping group had hip replacement surgery on Mon 7-1-13 and is quite a lot of pain. If anyone would like to send her a card, please pm me and I will give you her name and address.

It was fun learning a new technique. I used only 2 colors but there doesn't seem to be a lot of definition between the colors. Enjoy.

Sounds interesting! I assumed you meant tissue paper at first but you mean actually like KLEENEX! Okie Dokie!

Here's one I made tonight using the tissue stamping technique. I used the tissues to place my three colors directly on an embossing folder and then ran it through! Love how it turned out! Great challenge!
