This is what I came up with for the TLC challenge today. Paper tole stamping with no flower images..I stamped my image 3 times.. one as a base, the second grass and lighthouse cut out and popped up and the third just the light cut out and popped for the third layer. What fun! This was my first time trying this technique, and since I like to cut and color, it may be something I will do again and again.I also wanted to use my hph! So how to get that big ole sentiment in that little square.. I thought maybe I will highlight just a few words... nope, couldn't get it to work today... So, I said to myself, "Self, what about all of that darkness, let's take a few minutes and look through the Good book and find something about that. I did stamp the sentiment randomly on the creamy caramel layer with river rock classic ink before I sent it through the cuttlebug.. just needed some texture. I found the verse and printed it out and taped it to the outside of the hph, and did a Faith has shared before and colored the silver with a black sharpie marker. Honestly, I didn't think that it would work, but after 3 layers it covered.. and of course in my impatience for it to work I thought "Hhhmm, maybe I should 'heat set' it with my trusty embossing gun...BAD idea... duh, it is metal and it gets REALLY HOT! Thanks for looking!
