Okay I read that twice... Toilet paper? But my what a super result! Love it! As we are in lockdown and stupid people like to clear the supermarket shelves, toilet paper is a valuable commodity here Lol! Have a great day Christine

This technique using toilet paper gives a great result Christine and a brilliant script background to your prettily coloured berry branch. I haven't tried this yet but will be giving it a go. As Ros says as soon as there are restrictions the first thing to be difficult to find is toilet paper. I think some people possibly wont have to buy any for months to x

Beautiful! The cherries really stand out against the white. I'm on my way over to Magenta to see what you did with the toilet paper.

Bonnie said...

A great embossed background, Christine! I love how you've used the distressed edge to add texture and those red berries are awesome! I'm really impressed with your fussy cutting!

Your berry sprig looks so pretty over the embossed white background Christine!

Leslie Miller said...

Fabulous! I didn't know about the spritzing (read that on Magenta). Bet this would work with napkins, too. Making a note. Your cutting of those beautiful berries is very precise!

Amazing card Christine. Who knew that toilet paper could look this good??!! :) Love the script embossing with the berry branch over top. Amazing fussy-cutting skills, my friend! xx

Gorgeous, Christine. It’s simple yet so striking. Love it!
Need to give this TP technique a try.

Great effect and love the embossing with the pretty colour pop from the sprig x. What a fun technique too x.

This is so pretty, I have been meaning to have a go at that toilet paper embossing technique but just can't seem to get round to it. This is a lovely example xx
