CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Texture Time

 Good Morning, Stampers!

The Create with Connie and Mary team is closing out the
month of March with a little texture time!
We will show you some fun and different ways to 
add texture to your projects. We hope you'll
find some ideas to incorporate these ideas into your own projects!

This card looks like it would be a lot of work, but really,
it came together pretty quickly! I started out with a 
4" x 5 1/4" piece of watercolor cardstock. Then, I crumbled
up a piece of white tissue paper. I then added the crumbled tissue paper to 
the watercolor paper using multi-purpose liquid glue and let it dry 
completely. Once dried, I mixed reinkers with water and added the
color directly to the tissue paper and speckles using water painters
all over the panel and let that all dry completely. Finally, I added the gold
guilded leafing using a little multipurpose liquid glue.

The two pre-printed pieces are part of the NEW Fully
Flowering Ephemera pack coming in the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.
 I stamped the sentiment onto the label and then added the Guilded
Leafing on to those as well and finished it off with a little Linen Thread
and adhesive-backed gold sequins. I hope you give this tissure
technique a try - it;s so much fun!

I am blown away by what you did with simply two pieces of the Ephemera pack!!! May i ask a couple questions? If you only used Garden Green ink, where did the coral-ish color on the tissue paper come from? Also, how did you apply the Gold Leafing? Did you apply the glue and let it dry mostly first, then sprinkle over the tacky top of glue?? Thank you for showcasing a fantastic idea for using those simple pack pieces to come up with something fabulous!!! You may have started something with this….!
