I was having a play with background techniques and here's a card using small strips of coloured tissue paper laid onto spritzed glossy card, spritzed again, and then sandwiched between pages in a telephone directory until it had dried. The tissue paper is then peeled off and the dyed background comes out like this. I had hoped for a brighter background as the tissue papers I used were lovely and vibrant, but the dye that comes out of them is obviously a weaker solution. Oh well, it works even if it's not what I'd hoped for.
I went to a big papercraft expo on Friday and picked up some lovely new stamps and 'toys'! LOL This silhouette flower image is one of them, from Montarga, a New Zealand company based in rocking and rolling Christchurch, which sadly is still being all shook up by earthquakes. Poor people - it must be so difficult living there.
