Have Tissue...

... paper? I used tissue paper on this project because as I've written before I don't have any turquoise paper and I needed turquoise for this week's Just for Fun color challenge:

I really like Rust - specifically the new Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and orange and blue are great complimentary colors... So:

This what I created. I tore a piece of paper to create the mask for the two sides of the card. The left side was stamped/embossed and blended with rust ink, the right stamped with the typewriter type background stamp. The flowers were created using Tim's Tattered Florals Sizzix die, smooshed and inked with some of the rust ink.

Now for my confession - I am a tissue paper hoarder! I save all the tissue paper that I get from gifts and, when I can get away with it, others gifts and I fold it nice and neat and reuse it! I had an entire closet filled with the stuff and forced myself to a limit of two boxes (that's a lot of tissue paper) and I had to make myself *gasp* purge some of it. I'm glad I kept the turquoise tissue paper!
