Happy Little Stampers August Mixed Media Challenge

Do pop over to Happy Little Stampers to see the fabulous inspiration for this Challenge!

My make is a card using backgrounds made with the Bleeding Tissue technique.
I took one A4 sheet of watercolour paper, placed circles of tissue on it and painted them in place with water.
I then left them to dry.

Having removed the tissue I cut three squares using square stitched dies to add to a white square card base.

On the two smaller squares I used stamps from 
Butterfly Birthday from Happy Little Stampers to stamp the butterflies and the sentiment.

I then used foam tape to add the smaller squares to the larger one which was glued with white glue to the card base.

I made an ATC using some more of the bleeding tissue background
 for my Day 219 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

I stamped a butterfly on this and used yellow card and three of the Tonic ATC Collection dies to put the ATC together.

Happy Crafting!

  2. Such wonderful colours :-) I went and bought some tissue here to try it but unfortunately they don't bleed !! LoL xxx

  3. Love the layering.
    Have to try this technique.
    If the paper bleeds, hopefully
    it can be used for cards too.
    We'll see.
    thanks for sharing.
