Vintage Script Tissue Paper

I'm currently in the process of designing a vintage style line of downloadable envelopes and cards which took my thought process down a path that seems to be fast becoming a lost art in the digital age, or is it? Who knew that old letters beautifully written in a calligraphic hand would become fodder for the digital and image transfer artist only decades later?

Miss Maggie's homemade script tissue paper
Maggie of Little Miss Maggie came up with this clever way of breathing a bit of creative life into the printed versions of your digital ephemera. Printing them on colored tissue paper is easier than you might think using your ink jet printer. It's been years since I have done this but all you need is a bit of tape to secure your tissue paper on to a piece of standard copy paper and voilà!
