Double the fun





These are some more images I stamped & coloured of the Morning Glory, but I wanted to create some different backgrounds from the alcohol inked ones. I decided it was time to play with some mica sprays I have to give me some pastel backgrounds.








At first the colours seemed a little too strong for what I  wanted, but how to tone them down?

Then I looked at the box of tissues by my workdesk.








So I dropped a tissue over the card, and lightly pressed it down. When lifted off, I was left with a lovely muted sheet of card, which still retained its mica sheen.






     I also got some interesting texture effects depending how much pressure was put on the tissue-








As usual, I got carried away with the technique.....




But, best of all, I had lots of lovely coloured tissues....which I also put aside to dry, and now I think these may come in very useful for working with the canvases! Oh, and the tissues also have a mica sheen to them!







Using my trusty stamp positioner to place my image to its best advantage....

Beautiful cards! And I love how you've even kept the tissues - a true crafter never throws anything away lol!!

That floral stamp really lends itself to pastel tones, but still without being too girly. And what a nice stash of backgrounds you have lol!

You get carried away, Shaz! I would not have believed it of you. They are rather nice though, aren't they? I might try going back to mica backgrounds to see if that is any good for the kit I am trying to make up and get rid of. Anything for a little variation. It will have to be on darker backgrounds for those, though, I think.

So clever... thanks for sharing. Love this gentle pastel background. And those tissues look awesome as well. My daughter and I often play with tissue like that and then I finally use it on my cards... they are hard to stick though because of the layers.

Thanks for your visit and lovely comments,

Monica
