Make it Mondays - Tissue Paper

Happy Sunday! Last night I was playing around (much too long, I am paying for it right now..) and in the end made a card for the PTI Make it Mondays challenge. That technique cost me some nerves - somehow my tissue paper kept tearing and when I ran it through my Cuttlebug I ended up with a mess. It even haunted me in my dreams tonight because Betsy (she was not haunting, she was lovely!!) came over and tried to explain the technique to me again :)
Here is what I was able to save from my feeble tries:


I started with a piece of cream cardstock that I stamped with different images of the Life set (or Larger than Life, I am not sure). Then I did that tissue thing and stamped the sentiment afterwards.


I really love the look of this, so I won't give up yet and will try this again...


I hope your day is sunny and bright! It is here after a week of rain again, so I am looking forward to a day in the garden with my family and some friends! Thanks for visiting me and have a beautiful Sunday!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Das sieht klasse aus, Vanessa. Ich habe das auch gleich am Montag Abend ausprobiert und es klappte recht gut, wenn man mal davon absieht, daß beim Durchkurbeln der noch nicht trockene Kleber etwas rausgequetscht wurde. *hüstel* Aber nun liegt das Papier hier und ich bin noch nicht dazu gekommen, es zu verarbeiten. Aber es ist schon toll, wie es knalliges DP in ein zartes Papier verwandelt.

Hab einen schönen Pfingstsonntag, Tina
