Book Study - Resist with bleeding tissue

We're doing a Book Study as a group on NGS. We are using Nancy Curry's book "Texture Effects for Rubber Stamping". This card is inspired by her Tumbling Feathers card. I started by stamping 3 balloons with VersaMark ink on glossy card stock. Then heat set.

I tore some yellow, orange and red tissue paper (make sure it is the kind that bleeds). I placed it on a plastic lid and sprayed with water so they wouldn't float away from me.

I place the torn tissue above and below the stamped images and sprayed with water.

Next, I dried the tissue with a heat tool.

I used cosmetic sponges to rub on 3 colors of Distress inks, rubbing hard to reveal the resist images.

I stamped some balloons with the two darker Distress inks used in the background.

I stamped some more balloons with Brilliance ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I stamped some confetti along the upper and lower borders and stamped "celebrate" in black ink and embossed with black embossing powder and heat set.

I added some ribbon and mounted on red card stock.

I love how subtle the balloons appear on this card.
