I wanted to try using crystal effects and tissue, but had no CE, so tried using some cheap gel (big bottle bought for gel cards). I squeezed a drop of baroque burgundy reinker in the gel for color. I really liked the effect it gave( kind of like leather) but then didn't like the way I finished the card so tried the gel and tissue again on another card. To get just the words from the kanji set, I used a small paintbrush and a drop of reinker.

I like this look! Did you just squeeze the gel and reinker right onto the tissue and careful spread it around? I have a whole bottle of gel sitting around waiting to be used!! TFS!
