Tuesday's Teacher...ON A TUESDAY

So I have been trying to post this for quite some time now...either it's my computer or netzero is having some issues...either way it's driving me bananas!!
Crazy enough I actually had a plan and am doing what I said I would do all along! I'm posting Tuesday's Teacher on a Tuesday...crazy as that might seem! Here is today's Bible verse

I am the way, the truth and the life. No one come to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Do you know who Jesus is? he is the son of God in the image of man. We must first acknowledge Him and believe that he is our Saviour befoe we can enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Knowing who God is and who we are helps us to grasp our situations clearly as we seek a deeper relationship with Him. Jesus not only shows us the way, He IS the way. He not only speaks the truth...He IS the truth. He not only bring the life...He is the life. He Himself suffered for us, so that we can one day be in heaven for eternity with the creator of the universe. Let Jesus be your way, your truth, your life. Let him guide your foot steps, your movements, your every breath.

Todays Tutorial... Paper tole

This is a very easy technique...just not the fastest technique.
Here are the supplies you will need, I used water color paper, but definately NOT a requirement!
Water color paper
Water based markers(I used cameo coral, apricot appeal, mellow moss, creamy carmel)
Aqua painter
stamp set of choice (I used Time with you)
Stazon Timber brown ink
cardstcok and accessories of your choice

The fisrt step is to stamp your images on water color paper and then color them with your makers... I then went through and used my aqua painter to lift away some of the ink to give it a more water colored effect.

In this step I have actually just finished cutting up all the parts that I want to be raised from the various stamped and colored images...this is where your patience can be tested a bit!
Once you have them all cut up...you just have to layer. On the top layers I like to flair the ends some to give it more detail...with such small pieces it's a little harder though!

A closeup...don't you just love all the layers? There are 2 hats, 2 shirts, one pair of shorts, 3 flowers in baskets and one pair of sunglasses...man those were small!!!

This is another close up at a different angel so you an see all the layering details.

Here is the finished product! I hope you like it...a whole lot of work, but I definately think it turned out great! I love the paper tole technique...gives sooo much dimention to a card!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the paper tole technique!

Happy Stampin'
