Cards & Bleeding Tissue Technique

Yesterday, I needed to make 5 cards for birthdays in October. My SU order came last week, and I really wanted to try a couple of the sets. These daisies just cried for the bleeding tissue technique (from Technique Junkies!). A sunset scene would go perfectly with the daisy silhouettes. I pulled out my purple, yellow, orange, and red tissue and went to work. Before I knew it, I completed 6 backgrounds. They made really pretty cards - without much embellishment needed. Hopefully, my friends won't mind getting similar cards for the October birthdays. :)

These card were made using bleeding tissue from Michael's and SU glossy cardstock. The daisies are from Upsy Daisy set - new this catalog - and are stamped in basic black. Elegant Eggplant is used for the back layer.

This card is done the same way (and is the one on the right above), but "live with passion" is stamped as a sentiment on the front. It's stamped with basic black directly on the background. The sentiment is from the new SU set Inspired By Nature.

October cards are done. Cruise is right around the corner!!!

Have a great day, and remember that there's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day! :)
