Paper Tole Technique

Hi all! First of all I want to address the question you've all been asking, or at least most of you are wondering... I'm soo disappointed to tell you this, but "NO"...this blog banner is not my home :( Sure WISH it WAS though!! I'd invite you all over to have a latté with me :P It does look so inviting and cozy...so we'll just pretend ;D

And NEXT, here is my card I did for yesterday's technique challenge #162. I wasn't sure what paper "tole" was, but simply, it's popping up elements of an image to give it a 3d effect.

You can see the images that I popped up better in the second photo. Keep in mind this was my 1st attempt at this technique and looking back, I should've popped up different elements like her clothes instead of her head, lol. OH WELL... live and learn!

I popped up:

  • Her Head & Hair
  • Her Shoes
  • Flowers in her Hand
  • Flowers and Heart on her shirt
  • Heart on the Sentiment
  • Sentiment on the Scallop
  • Scallop on the Card
