APCC Week16~Altered Playing Card Challenge


This brings me to this week's Challenge for Week 16! Yay! Caught up!

This week was another super fun technique and you and see all the fun details HERE

Here is my set for Week 16.

The background is as fun and simple as can be, apply tissue to the background and scrunch it up!

I used some Tim Holtz Melange tissue I had on hand. Color the background using paint, I used some acrylic paint. Let it dry, then apply the tissue, I used some gloss medium. While the medium is wet just use your fingers to mush around the tissue and and wrinkles. As Claudine mentions, if you do not have any printed tissue, it is fine, just stamp onto plain tissue and make your own! I like to stamp onto tissue paper using archival inks, they do not run when the tissue gets wet.

These stamps are Newton's Nook and Tim Holtz. 

The butterfly stamp is Tim Holtz. The moon is a scrap from another project using embossed foil tape. I really love this one with my improvised Moon and my favorite colors:)

Have a great evening and see you soon!
