I was needing a couple cards this week. One for the Technique Junkies 1 on 1 swap and 1 for our oldest son's anniversary. I used the same technique on both, the Bleeding Tissue technique. Turned out pretty good!
For this technique to work you must use a tissue that bleeds when wet. Mine was made by Spectra. I used the Stuck on You stamp set and coordinating dies but I bought these as a Bundle. Oh, you need glossy card stock, too. I have not tried this on regular card stock as I have a whole ream of glossy and I do like the effect.
I added some of the smallest Pearls to the tops of the cacti and to a smudge on the pot. I colored with Copic markers.
I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the cacti flowers for this card.
Today I'm in Mesa at the Scrapbook Expo. I am a volunteer with the FSJ booth so if you happen to be there today stop by and say hi! We'll be doing a Make 'N Take! Should be great fun!
