Faux Silk Swallowtail

A mist of Shimmer Paint Spray makes this crumpled tissue paper technique glow like silk.

Shimmer Paint Spray
In a small spray bottle, combine 2 oz. 70% Rubbing Alcohol and 1/2 teaspoon Shimmer paint. (I used Frost White 116854.)

-cut a piece of double-sided Multi-purpose adhesive sheet and apply it to a card stock mat
-sponge inks on tissue paper and let dry
-crumple tissue paper and smooth out slightly
-remove release paper from adhesive sheet
-position tissue paper over mat and press it onto the adhesive
-stamp image on tissue covered mat
-apply inks to the image with sponge daubers
-mist with Shimmer Paint spray
-speed drying with a heat tool to minimize bleeding inks
-trim the mat to size
-lightly sand the edges of the mat
