Tissue Paper Blog Hop





Time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!  The challenge this month was to use tissue paper on our creations.  I stamped several layers of tissue paper with one of the stamps from Polka Dot Basics II in Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf ink.  Then I die cut the layers with PTI's butterfly die.  The butterflies are held together with a couple crystal brads from making memories.

The true black card base is stamped in white with the large dots from the same stamp set.  I added a small strip of Raspberry Fizz patterned paper which was punched with my Fiskars apron lace border punch.  The sentiment, from Enjoy the Ride, is heat embossed with white ep.

Oh wow. Those butterflies look like they are in motion because of all the layers! Very cool Sara. How do you get your white polka dots and sentiment to be SOOOO white. It shows up beautifully on both the pink stripe and the black base. Gorgeous.
