Flower Bed


Hi, Happy Tuesday. Today's card is for the House Mouse challenge. You were to do the technique of paper tole. Which consists of cutting part of the image out from a second stamping after coloring it and outlining the image with a dry emboss tool, then turning it over and rubbing with the tool until it curls. Then you glue this over the original stamping. It looks 3D or bevelled. I did this to the mouse and top of the thistle. It's hard to photograph, but is quite nice when you see it in person. Hope your Tuesday is going well. Tonight is our Stamp club. Thanks for stopping by. Until later...............

Thanks Lorraine, you're absolutely right, it's house mouse not penny black, was late and I was tired. Thanks for catching that, I have fixed it.

Thanks Sue for a beautiful card -- I looked at this stamp in my drawer and just couldn't decide how to do the paper tole on it. You've done a lovely job and have inspired me.
