The Embossed Toilet Paper Technique Challenge closes on June 21st. So, still a few more days to get your projects posted. 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)
Sea Shells with Rectangle Frame (Frame)
ATC Set-Honey Bees (Flower)
Verses-Feel Better (sentiment on the inside)
Pesto Adirondack Reinker- Ranger
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink Reinker - Ranger
Pistachio,Olive Grove, and Tuxedo Black ink Pads - Memento
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.
