PTI Blog Hop!


Wow...I can't believe it's time for another PTI Blog Hop!! This time, Nichole challenged us to use tissue paper. Her comment was that we always get some in our boxes when we order, but that wasn't what I thought of when I heard tissue paper.

For me, I was thinking about the craft I used to do when I was younger where I'd put a square of tissue paper on the end of a pencil, dab it in glue and adhere it to paper. So, I took that old idea, and made it a little more "adult" :)


I stamped the tree from Beyond Basic Borders and adhered the pink tissue paper to look like a cherry blossom. The "sky" was stamped on using wadded up tissue paper and Aqua Mist ink. I stamped the Mother sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages along with the brackets from Vintage labels in Spring Moss and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. (sorry, my pic of that part isn't so good!)



I hope you enjoy! Is there anything different you'd do? Anything you'd change or add?
