Tye Dye Tissue Paper

Yesterday afternoon I was in the mood to play!
So I grabbed some things I had on hand and got a little messy.
Here are two cards I created with the directions on how I made the paper.

The top one I stamped the image on the paper and cut out and placed over the images stamped on white paper. The bottom I just cut into a few strips and then cut a sentiment.

Here is how I did it:
Tissue paper, water, reinkers, spritzer with water, White card-stock, paper towels, glue stick and brayer.
Start by wetting your tissue paper with water.
Next add drops of your reinkers onto the tissue paper
This is after all three colors.
Next spray with more water - you can even tip the paper to get more running.
Blot off extra water and ink with paper towels and dry.
I used my heat gun to dry the tissue paper - here's what it looked like when done
I crumpled the paper many times and then glued to a piece of card-stock using glue stick.
I then used a brayer to press the tissue into the glue. I cut the edges and started creating.
I hope you will try it with some fun color combinations.
Thanks for checking out this tutorial.
Stamp Happy!
