I bought some bleeding art tissue at my university bookstore because it seems like it has potential for my craft stash (lol), but I don't really know how to use it. It looks simple...wet it, and color comes out of it, but I just tried to make some Christmas cards, and they are not turning out that great.

Can anyone tell me the proper way to use it, or some pointers, or some projects that I can use it for?

I use it to make watercolor look backgrounds for ATCs & other papercrafts. I use watercolor paper, lightly wet in, apply paper in mosaic type patterns, mist it, let dry, peel off & toss tissue.  The watercolor paper is beautiful.  I love that the colors blend when you overlap them, so you can make perfectly graduated color schemes.

I also use it the same way to give a watercolor look to the inside of paper boxes.  You can get all the edges easily without too much hassle or dripping.

I'm interested to try it on unfinished wood.

Hope that helps :-)

For Example:

The black is marker, the rest is the tissue used as described above.

@Amanda,I love the black marker over it!

Here is a tutorial I did on using the tissue for dying paper....I save the strips and use those too!
