I love the new plain Tissue Wrap--it is lovely to handle and smooths down so easily. Stamped images come out crisp on this surface. I often add images on tissue to my work, and it has a tendency to tear. So I will be getting lots of use out of this perfectly sturdy Tissue Wrap.
My sewing machine is worthless, so I tried my hand at some hand stitching at the top, but I soon got tired of that. I hope adding the vintage dyed lace along the bottom serves as a substitute. I dyed the lace and crinkle ribbon with Abandoned Coral spray stain. I also used Abandoned Coral in ink form on the ball of yarn and heat embossed in clear.
I love how expressive the Crazy Cat's eyes are. It you turn them one way you get a whole different expression that if they were another. I turned mine upside down to get that deer in the headlights look Biskit always has (when she's awake).
I added the birds on a wire Remnant Rub at the top, since Biskit spends her free time (after raiding my Closet and sleeping) watching the birds in the backyard from the french doors. The Remnant Rubs stick seamlessly to whatever you want to stick them to--here the textile surface and the stamped and Vintage medium'd Tissue Wrap.
