Very cute card.

What a beautiful card!

Your card is so cute. Thanks for sharing this technique. I just finished a layout and tried the glue on tissue paper but it wrinkled the paper at some point. I may need to do this a few times before I join your challenge. But I do love it.

This is great! Going to have to try this one.

This card is my example for my SOF11 Double Take Challenge. The challenge is to make two impressions of the same stamp using white tissue paper to get the original, forward version and a reversed, mirror image. Then you use the pair together on a card, like the foxes shown here.

To create the card, I started with Hero Arts E5465 Fox stamp. I stamped it using Memento dye ink (dries faster) onto white tissue paper. Then I turned the tissue paper over, and stamped the fox again. The tissue paper is thin enough that you can see both stamped impressions from either side and you get a mirrored pair.

Because I also decided to paper piece my foxes, I had to create multiple tissue paper pairs. One pair for the polka dotted background paper, one for white cardstock, and one for the orange cardstock.

The orange cardstock I picked is very textured. Normally, when you glue the tissue paper down, the tissue paper seems to “disappear” and all you see is the stamped impression. However, because I used a very textured cardstock, the tissue paper only disappears where it comes in full contact with the cardstock. Some parts of the tissue still show in my example, because of the texture.

The patterned papers are from KaiserCraft's “Rustic Charm” line. The polka dots are “P322 Lucky Country” and the stripes are “P321 Buckleys”. The textured metallic blue card base is from Die Cuts With a View's (DCWV) Metallic Stack. The orange textured paper is Bazzill Basics Desert Coral Medium. White velvet scallops from American Crafts. Hero Arts blue and black gemstones. Signo Uni Ball opaque white pen used to make the inner part of the ears white (too small to cut out).

Thanks for looking! :-)
