The Embossed Toilet Paper Technique Challenge closes on June 21st. So, still a few more days to get your projects posted. See the info here. Follow the Technique's step by step instructions created by Leigh on the Blockheads Web Page here. For this sample, I used one of the smaller embossing folders (2 1/2" x 4 1/4"). This made a nice little frame within which I stamped.
Toilet Paper (2ply)
Small Embossing Folder
Dark Green CS
I followed the Technique instructions. I added the reinkers while the toilet paper was wet and before I closed up the Embossing Folder. I added a few drops of reinker and then sprayed some water-repeat. When the toilet paper was dry, I trimmed the piece a bit. I stamped the Rectangle Frame with Pistachio ink and then the Flower with Olive Grove ink.
The Embossed Toilet Paper piece was then stapled to a dark green card base. I used some copper colored staples. On the inside, I distressed White CS with Pesto and Frayed Burlap inks. And, stamped another flower in Olive Grove. The sentiment is stamped with Tuxedo Black.
I did a little sample on regular white CS to see if I like the Rectangle frame and the flower together. And, as you can see above I did like the combo. The sample looked really nice and I thought I could make a nice card with that too. I grabbed some scraps that were laying around and put them together to make this nice little card (3 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Some small pearls were added and a pretty May Arts ribbon.
