House Mouse Monday Challenge #44 - Paper Tole

This week's House Mouse Monday Challenge is Paper Tole. I wasn't sure what that was but the gorgeous cards by the Design Team gave me some wonderful inspiration.

I just had to ink up this new stamp, but I probably could have chosen a simpler one for the paper tole technique. But I'm a bit of a jump-in-with-both-feet kind of gal, so here I go. The roof of the well, the middle and right-hand bunnies, and the pile of pennies are paper tole. I used Copics to color the whole image.

Other supplies:
Card base: Kraft paper
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Effects: Cuttlebug bubble embossing folder with Kraft paper
Sentiment: my own (yea! I actually wrote a sentiment!)
I just love this stamp. It is so animated and can be used for several types of cards.
Thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to pop over to the House Mouse Monday and look at the fabulous cards by the DT and the participants. Join in with your paper tole card, too!
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
God Bless America!

This one is truly "made for keeps". Your beautiful coloring makes me "need" Copics -- but I doubt that I could use them as effectively as you!

....oh wow, Barb, - fantastic - you are right,it is such a cute stamp. I love paper tole and was always going to get into it but never did. I guess 3d cards are the closest I'll come to it.
Well done, my friend - love your colouring too.
