Tissue Techique -
I first stamped the large floral image, from the Just Believe stamp set, on whisper white cardstock. Then I applied 2-way glue to the edges of the cardstock and around the image. (I tried not to touch the inked image for fear of smearing the image.) I then careful placed a piece of white tissue paper over the cardstock smoothing out the paper as I layed it down. I used a piece of tissue paper a little large than the cardstock. I did not measure because I found it is easier to trim the tissue paper off rather than cut the paper to exact measurements without tearing it. I then stamped an image on top of the tissue paper with Graden Green. I love the effect! Hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrunch Technique -
To scrunch up the ribbon:
