Taking it's 'TOLE' at the MOD SQUAD.

Over at The Mod Squad my good friend Judy Woodland
is hosting this weeks Challenge
and here is what she has asked us to do -
  Today I have a little paper tole for you.
All you need to do is take an image,
make at least 3 copies,
and cut out smaller and smaller bits of it
to layer together.

Here is my interpretation

I used my all time favourite Stampin' Up stamp -
Fifth Avenue Floral for this card
I have made many a card for this technique with this stamp
as the big rose is just perfect for cutting and layering.
I used 3 different coloured textured card stock
and heat embossed on two fussy cut
and popped them as a backing.
I then inked the rose stamp three times
and cut our smaller bits for the tole technique
distressed and cut in a few places before
putting it together
I added a touch of iridescent medium for
a little sheen on the flower backed by
a few leaves from Marianne Designs
some Kaisercraft pearls and
sentiment from Gina K Designs.
Thanks for stopping by and till next time
