playing with copper tissue



We have had a shipment of this fabulous fine copper tissue which I have punched with my flower punch and stitched a couple of samples using both the positive and negative images. It's great - easy to stitch on and easily manipulated. I shall roll some beads and try patinating tomorrow. Not a crusty vessel yet I know but I am experimenting towards this end. Lots of ideas to try. I might make a little book cover tomorrow and use the tissue for beads. And use some of my rusted papers for inside. This has grown out of my Frangipani play from Broome so I am stitching with my Kimberley Dreaming threads.

Off to dinner with Serena and Frank tonight at Cafe Martino after a busy week.

Must look and see if I have some of that copper tissue in my Thread Studio box. Like the idea of the punch, how big is it?
