Tissue Paper Backgrounds


White scrunched up tissue paper was glued on this atc and once dried rubbed over with black archival ink, added an image mounted on a piece of card and a couple of words.


Black scrunched up tissue paper was glued to this atc and once dried I rubbed over it lightly with pewter treasure gold. Added the image, watch parts, washer and prestud, mounted the word onto black card.

Ooh Sam love the texture you created using the tissue love both pictures very much, really love the steam punk one though. I'm a bit partial to steam punk but as yet inspiration alludes me. Excellent ! Xxx

Fab ATCs. Like the steampunk one, think the "eyes" are a bit menacing lol. Great texture on both tho

So dramatic, and so cool! The drama of the first with those red eyes is amazing, and the black inking on the white wrinkles looks fab. And the steampunk one is just brilliant... the pewter on the black tissue has such a great metallic look - and I love the composition - love these, Sam!
