Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop


This is my first PTI customer blog hop and I'm so excited!! This month's challenge was to use tissue paper on a card or project. Since I loved how the faux silk card I did a while back turned out so well I thought I'd do that again.

I got my inspiration from an Elle Decor magazine I saw at my hair salon, LOL! It was an ad for some wallpaper that instantly gave me this idea. First, I stamped the image from With Sympathy on tissue paper, from my last PTI order (I feel so GREEN, LOL!), with Enchanted Evening ink. Then I adhered the tissue to a piece of Kraft card stock with a glue stick and trimmed the edges. Next, I added some white to the leaves with a gel pen. Then I added a ribbon and bow using Summer Sunrise Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon, stamped the butterfly with Summer Sunrise ink, cut it out, and popped it up on half of a small Pop Dot. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, added it to an Enchanted Evening card base, and added some pearls that I colored with Copic markers. I tried to get a good picture of the faux silk effect but I couldn't. I think it's because it's on Kraft instead of white--whatever, it just wouldn't show up.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm really happy with how this turned out and I hope you like it, too!
