The Sugar Bowl Challenge 42

This card is made using Lilian's Sketch with a theme of pearls for the Sugar Bowl Challenge this week.

For the embossed background to this card I used a technique I saw demo'd by Ali Reeve recently. First of all you need to layer three sheets of toilet paper (!) then spray it with mica colours. While it is still wet I then put it in an embossing folder and passed it through my Cuttlebug then left it to dry. It gives the look of handmade paper and an interesting texture to a card.


  1. A very sweet card Jocelyn.
    The borders are fab, and the image is coloured beautifully. I've never heard of the techique with toilet paper!
    Thanks for joining in the Sugar Bowl challenge.
    Love Elaine xx

  2. Gorgeous work and Maggie is just darling! Thank you for sharing your paper technique. Something I need to try someday :) Thanks for joining the Sugar Bowl Challenge!
