I have different colors of ink and varying amounts of rubbing alcohol to get the following results.
I tried to come up with the perfect card for the dyed tissue paper and my first attempt was to create a tissue paper flower. I tore a long strip and then folded the strip accordion style to make a circular flower. I used the Card Sketch for April Challenge to make this Happy Birthday card.
You may notice that I used some scraps leftover from my cards from the previous post. I seldom throw scraps away but use them in another project.
Attempting to create a design for another Club Scrap challenge was rough. We had to used a circle cutter - not punches, dies, digital cutter etc. Having sold all of my CM round and oval cutters, I found a template that I used t cut circles with in my sewing stash.
The problem was I had to fold the paper into quarters for a circle, so I decided to used the dyed tissue paper because folding paper would leave creases in my circles. I used the same sketch and scraps from my Birds of a Feather paper pack for this card.
Finally in order to participate in the Technique Linky Party, I had to come up with a third way to used my dyed tissue paper. Finding a half started note card box was a bonus because it became the perfect canvas for my dyed tissue paper fan.
Here are the cards that can be found with the box.
I will post the individual cards in another post as this is getting to be a long one.
I hope you are inspired to give this technique a try!
