Tissue Paper and Wildflowers for CAS Mix Up

Hello there.

I have a super easy card to share today.

I used a super simple technique.

I tore some tissue paper and crumpled it up in my hands.

After straightening it out some and tearing a piece off,
I placed a frame cut from Glimmer Paper over it.

Then I added a die cut sent to me by my dear friend Nancy.

I added a sentiment stamped and heat embossed in white on a black snippet.

Couldn't be easier.

My mixed media are tissue paper, stamping, heat embossing and die cuts.

There are several different techniques using tissue paper and you
can find how to videos at CAS Mix Up.

It's a really fun technique and a good way to use that crinkled tissue paper!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Classy, so effective and love the black on the white with teh added texture. I think far too much and was playing with the tissue paper technique for the past couple of days and believe you me they won't see the light of day....You do CAS to perfection, not easy but you make it look so x

Oh Bonnie, this is another stunning example of this wonderful new (to me) technique, love the striking contrast of the black flowers against the crinkled tissue paper, the frame just finish it off perfectly.
Off to pinning.
