THT045 Paper Tole - WOW


I made this card for this week's Treehouse Thursday Challenge to use the paper tole technique. I don't think I've ever used this technique to this extent before. This card has a total of 4 layers for the sunflowers. I spent more time making this card than any other card I've ever made, but I LOVE the way it turned out. I used the cheaper 120# watercolor paper, and the prismacolor pencils blended amazingly well on it.

Supplies:

Stamps: Ashley's Doodles, Sunflower Bouquet (Treehouse Stamps)
Ink: None
Cardstock: Watercolor Paper, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, White
Accessories: Big Shot, Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Button, Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol

Great card, gave me some inspiration. Thanks.

This is a long shot, but did you ever live in Wheeling WV? You greatly resemble a Kelly that I went to school with there, many years ago.
