Tissue Tape Tag Six

Yes, I think this is Tag Number 6 - from the girl who doesn't 'get' tags! I think as Tim says, they are a good way to try out a new technique and as such they are very addictive. Petra was here the other day and kindly bought me some white filter papers as I only had brown. Recently Gingersnap Creations did various projects with filter papers and although I made an album, it was just filter paper shaped, and I hadn't realized how lovely the papers are to spritz. I may have mentioned a few times (!) that my lovely friend, Pauline, has bought me the Tattered Florals die for my birthday. It isn't even my birthday yet but I am using this loads, and putting it through its paces.

I went for a peach colour scheme to go with the Paris stamp on the tissue tape and spritzed the filter paper with mica sprays then dried it and put it through the die. Then I just layered them up with a bought flower in the middle and some die cut grungepaper leaves. I then added some co-ordinating fibres. I don't think Tim always puts fibres on his tags, does he? I like to add a bit of colour. I mentioned the other day that tissue tape is a good way of muting the colour of a cardstock you have and don't like too much. This was a horrible mandarin colour but just a peach blush comes through.

  11. What a great background with the tissue tape! I love that it tones down the cardstock colour - a very good tip!
