Paper Tole and Background

This week I have a card for two challenges. For the Stamp TV weekly challenge we are to create a background and on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog we are asked to create something with paper tole.

I used Gina's scrap paper technique for the main background and a variation on Kendra's reinker background for the focal image. I then did some paper tole for the flower. I used some of the petals on the flower for leaves and layered on the petals and the center with foam tape.

Here are the products I used:
Paper - My Mind's Eye - Kate & Co. - Oxford Lane
          - Cricut Rainbow
Ink - Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant, Memento Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir markers - JG4, JG1, CT4, LV3, LV2, HB3, BT9
Stamps - Gina K Designs Especially for you set


  1. Gorgeous, I love the papertole and the background you made and the other background too is beautiful as well!

  2. This is so pretty! I love your gorgeous flower and the colors of it.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. You captured Gina's technique perfectly, what a fun background. And I am so partial to watercolor backgrounds, yours is stunning! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Mod Squad!

  4. Jaw dropping beautiful. Love all the techniques you used and how you used the colors.

  5. The papers are a great choice in the background, and the panel and flower are beautiful!


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
