More Embossed Toilet Paper!

Hi Dreamers!
I have more of the embossed Toilet Paper today!!  There is still plenty of time to join in the Blockheads Technique Challenge.    I call this card "Dragonflies at Sunset".

I used the same technique as my first card.  But, this time I added ink to the wet Toilet paper.

Materials List:
Inspired By Nature Full Sheet
Toilet Paper 2 ply
Embossing Folder: Fancy and Floral Set Texture Fades
Ginger Adirondack 
Rusty Hinge Distress Ink
Onyx Black Versafine
Peach and Rust CS

While layering the Toilet paper, I added drops of the reinkers and then sprayed more water on.    After the embossed TP was completely dry, I stamped the cattails and dragonflies with Onyx Black ink.   I applied the glue to the CS instead of the embossed TP.  I did not plan it, but the ink colors ended up looking just like a sunset.

I stamped the same images on the peach CS for the inside of the card as seen below.  This would be a great general thinking of you card or even a birthday card.

I hope you will join us for the challenge.  I know this technique looks hard, but it really is simple.  And you can make a whole stack at one time.
I hope you are having a great day.  We are having the most beautiful weather today here in Michigan.  I worked in the garden most of the day today.  I extended a bed.  I put a new rose bush and two hostas in the bed so far.  I may add a few more small things.   I will take some photos tomorrow and show you what I did.
 Love ya!


  1. Absolutely LOVE it!!! The colours are soooo rich and beautiful and just scream sunset!

  2. Beautiful card. The technique is on my to do list.

  3. How cool is this- love the technique - I would have assumed that if you stamped on TP it would bleed.....LOVE this technique and your great sunset!

  4. This is my all-time fav! Those colors are just gorgeous! I need to get crackin' on this challenge!
