It is so good to be back.
Wondering what I mean in my post title?
Well, for this week's tip I wanted to share how you can customize your tissue paper.
I customized some of mine & it was quick and simple.Using some inks & stamps I was able to turn my boring white tissue paper into pretty works of art.
Once I stamped the entire surface of my tissue paper, I heat set the ink with my heat gun. I did not let it sit in any one spot too long as the tissue paper is quite thin. You get this really neat affect where you can see your stamped image on both sides when stamping on the white tissue paper.
With a few products from my craft stash I was able to get some really nice tissue paper which I can in turn use in different ways.
Take a look:
From monogramming, stamping actual names, special dates, images, etc...you too can make the most of your plain tissue paper. By the way, it works well with colored tissue paper as well. You may need darker color inks for the darker colors or white ink.
The products I used were as follows:
- Tissue Paper (Plain-white)
- Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Vintage Photo & Weathered Wood)
- Fiskars Stamp Press
- Stamps by Hero Arts
- Ranger Craft Sheet
Hope you get some time to craft and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
