Make It Monday #18: Adding Texture with Tissue Paper


 
                                         


Ok.... so now that I've sort of/barely gotten the hang of this blogging thing I thought that I'd attempt another Make It Monday!
I love the idea of the faux silk look and a lovely tissue paper flower. However, having it all come together was not as easy as it sometimes is - guess that it just was not a mojo kinda day! Anyway, I wanted to do something different with the tissue paper background..... I covered my kraft piece with glue, attached PTI  rustic jute twine in a diamond pattern, covered the whole thing with my fancy tissue paper (a HUGE pack from my neighbor- left over from her wedding invitations 20+ years ago!), and added a little more of the fancy tissue paper for the flower and a little snippet of ribbon/lace. Et voila!

I think your card is fabulous! I love the bitty polka dots, and the colors, and the lace, and the twine, and that gorgeous flower. A beautiful card. ;-) Great work!
