Top Tip Tuesday New Challenge

Week 3 Lili of the Vally Candy here:
*******************************************

So this is the tissue paper new only $1.00 woohoo! I applied the tissue paper to stock paper with mod podge beneath
Hi!  It's time for another challenge at Top Tip Tuesday!  But before I get to that, you are going to LOVE the tutorial that my DT buddy Deneen shares at the challenge blog.  It's just the prettiest 3D tea pot ever and MAN can she make it look simple!  You know how I love my 3D projects, and I soooooooo wanted to give it a try but when your on the DT, you should help spread a little love of the sponsor graphics too and I really needed to get some cards for mom out before the craft sales for the year start up again in May!

This is before the mod podge dries, the paper is left bumpie on purpose for texture, after dried, be sure to trim the edges
So I've made a card using, what I thought, was just a really different idea.  I want o share where I got the idea because it's the right thing to do.  They used a napkin and decopauge where I used tissue paper and Mod Podge but the technique is the same so you can find it on the Cardmaker Blog and if you like either result, I suggest you give it a try, it was really fun and the final result of mine at least  is super special with all it's lumps and bright colors.  I just wish there were 30 hours in the day!

Here is the reason the card didn't need any embellishments other than the ribbon, it is really lush under the graphic image!
