Paper Tole

Good morning everyone. Wow it is November already. Before we all know it it will be Christmas. Gosh that is a scary thought as I so not prepared for it yet. Thankfully this year we are only doing a family thing here at home. No big trips for us this year.
This week at Anya Ink we have a challenge of 'Paper Tole' - which is pretty much layering up your image. I love doing this but haven't done it much so this was an excellent challenge. I used Snuggle this week. She is so so so cute. She was easy to Tole. I thought I would show you how to do it for those who are not familiar with it.
Firstly you have to decide how many layers you want of your image. I decide to have three layers on some parts so I stamped her out four times and coloured the first image completely - as you can see LOL. I then cut out all the pieces I wanted to layer up.
The difficult part is trying to line up the cutout bits with the base image but I got there.
Get your thinking caps on and can't wait to see what you all come up with. Why don't you pop into Marcia's blog and check out her beautiful creation. Watch out for an announcement on Anya Ink's blog for the new DT.
