FOSTV70 - Use Tissue Paper

Monday has rolled round again and I need to have a creative week as I have lots of things to get done.

Before I start though I want to show you my card using Tissue Paper which is our Marks Finest Papers challenge over at FOSTV this week.  It is challenge 70 and you should see it go up sometime today.

This card uses two MFP sets which I have added at the bottom of my post.  It also uses vellum, some shimmer paper, Edgeabilities dies and a large M-Bossabilities folder from Spellbinders, ribbon, a dragon fly punch and some added gems.  The tissue paper was stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder before being turned into flowers - pieces from Christmas cracker decoration were used as flower centres. 

Instructions for how I made these flowers can be found here

The card is for my sister's Birthday which was yesterday but she will get it when I see her tomorrow - I hope she hasn't found my blog today!

Please visit Speedy TV and play along with our challenge this week.  There is a lovely little stamp set to be won.  Making something using tissue paper isn't too big an ask and if you use MFP stamps you double your chance of winning.  You can combine with other challenges so as long as it is something new we would love to see it.

Stamp sets used were Asian Delights and Birds and Trees.
