I have a project today that uses something we all have at home. Toilet Paper!! This month's Blockhead Challenge is brought to us by Leigh with her embossed Toilet Paper technique. See the complete tutorial here. Leigh's original post can be seen here and this is where you link up. This technique is a lot easier than it looks. The only thing I did differently was that I sprayed the tp while laying on the embossing folders with a large spray bottle. Not a mister, but a regular big spray bottle. I made four or five pieces and added color on some while wet and some later. I made a total of four cards and this is the first card.
Stamp: Verses Full Sheet
Two-Ply Toilet Paper
Beige and Cream CS
I followed the tutorial and did not add any inks to the TP while it was wet. Once it was dry, I used a direct to paper technique and added the Versa Magic inks. The Niagara Mist was used all over and Wheat just on the edges.
I attached the Embossed TP to a beige gray CS with brads. I put a small amount of glue on the back to hold the TP in place. The Sentiment was stamped with Olive Grove ink (Memento) on cream CS. This is one of the new Memento colors--have you seen them yet??!! Check them out here. I went around the edges of the stamped sentiment with Wheat Versa Magic.
I added three paper flowers held together with a brad. So, what do you think of this toilet paper?? Pretty fun, isn't it??!! I will share the other cards I made with my other embossed TP pieces over the next few weeks. Each piece turned out totally different. So stayed turned for that. Okay, get out your TP and play along with the Challenge!!! You have until June 21 to link up. One project will be chosen for a $25 gift certificate. Have fun!!! Love ya.
