House Mouse Challenge #44 - Paper Tole

At House Mouse this week it's Pat Rose's challenge.............:~ Paper Tole!
I must admit that I didn't know what this was until I was shown a tutorial on Mary's blog which you can find here but I'm still not 100% sure I got it right though it looks OK. The winner of last weeks prize will be announced in a seperate post.
Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!


***************************
I used the image Gentle Rain and coloured it with Copic markers, once done I cut around the mousie's face and ears, some. but not all of the daffodil petals and some, but not all of the leaves. At this point I turned over the image and using a largish ball point embossing tool gently worked over the cut area to stretch the paper. I padded the embossed area with silicone glue to create the dimension. I have seen a tutorial where they said you could use paper, foam or card to pack the embossed piece but I think silicone is more malleable. On some tutorials inc. Mary's the card is not cut so I think it's merely a personal choice. If you zoom in you should be able to see where the card is actually cut. Hope this helps any of you who are not sure - give it a go please - I certainly had heaps of fun trying this out.

What a fabulous technique! It really makes your card "pop". I did not think it possible to improve a Heather card. Clearly I was wrong :)

This is great and coloured terrifically, I might add. I can't seem to colour that image anything decent, although I have tried. Interesting technique this week, I will see what happens. If I don't post at HMMC, it's because things didn't work out, lol.

I hope you are managing a little rest during your move, and good luck through the rest of the journey.
