So Happy For You

This card is for the Special Content Challenges at Gingersnap Creations Yahoo Group.
The technique is wet embossing. I had never seen this done before, but wanted to see what I could come up with. Not so sure about it. You do need a solid stamp to really accomplish this. I tweaked it a little with a semi solid stamp. This is 3 layers of wet tissue paper mashed onto the stamp, let dry overnight, chalked, and attached to Night of Navy card stock, matted on designer paper, tied the bow and attached to card front.
If you want to try a very different technique this would be the one.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,

neat idea to use tissue paper...I've done something similar with toilet paper but not tissue paper so I'll have to try this...looks wonderfully like Spring ;-)
