Magnolia Down Under Challenge #45 - Paper Tole

This week's challenge at Magnolia Down Under is to use paper tole - you need to give your images a 3D effect. I love this technique - it may take a some extra time but the results are worth it. Mind you - I may have gone a little overboard with this card - LOL. I've toled 4 different Magnolia images - the stone window, Tilda, Little Fairy Tilda and the snail (my touch of whimsy - LOL).

The stone window has 3 layers - the outside scene, the window and the stones and mantel around the window. I used a stylus to shape the "stones" around the window to give them a more curved shape. I've also used my stylus on the snail shell - not that you can tell here - LOL.

My DP is from Magnolia and came from Kellie's Tickled Pink Stamps store. The flowers are from both Bizzy Bec's and TPS. I've used my MS punch to create the trellis - which has been glittered up with dazzling diamonds. The leaves are from my new SU bird punch - the branch he sits on - these are great branches for other uses too!

Now don't forget to pop on over to MDUC and check out the rest of the AWESOME inspiration from this week's DT group.

And if you missed it scroll down to my earlier post revealing Tickled Pink Stamps newest gal - Evie!

I'm entering this into Just Magnolia's "It Takes Two" challenge and Bizzy Bec's "Embellishments and Bling" Challenge.
