Dare to Get Dirty on Splitcoast

The Splitcoast Dirty Dozen and the Alumni are hosting Dare To Get Dirty Challenge 09. It started yesterday, the 23rd, and it goes through the 26th. Each day there will be a number of challenges hosted by either a current Dirty Dozen member, or an alum. To participate, or see what the challenges are, you must be a fan club member. If you are not, you can sign up HERE. Otherwise, head on over HERE to see how you can play along.

Kim Teasdale is hosting a paper tole challenge, and I was fortunate to be asked to make a sample for her challenge. I thought this Square Medallion Ornament by Holly Berry House would be fabulous Paper Toled. All I did was stamp it 6 times with Versamark onto Neenah Natural White, and embossed it with Detailed Gold ep (SU!) I then cut out the pieces I wanted paper toled. After all the pieces were cut out, I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Textile embossing folder. I did that after I cut my pieces out because the embossing makes the paper weaker, and it tears easier when making detailed cuts.

The ornament looks the same on the front and the back. I attached the cross charm in between the two dimensional pieces. Finally, I added a silver wired ribbon for hanging.

That sums up my project. Be sure to check out the galleries on Splitcoast.

Thanks for stopping by!!
Happy Stamping!!

I thought this was absolutely spectacular when I saw it last night as one of the samples for paper tole. The combination of the crisp textured white and the fold is just sumptuous.
