Interesting item used on card!

Can you guess what the unique item I used is??? TP!! Yep, good ol' TP! So I must say it is NOT easy to work with at all...everything I tried just wasn't turning out right. Maybe it was the brand I used or maybe I just don't know what I'm doing...probably a good combination of both! LOL! This card is actually for Angie's dad who was diagnosed with cancer. Her site is here. If you want to send a card just e-mail her for the address...I'm sure they would really appreciate the thought! At first I was going to do a masculine card but then I thought it is really the entire family that is dealing with this so I thought flowers would be a good idea. Men and women both like flowers!! I colored the image with my Copics...still improving on my blending! :) Covered it with paint on glitter for that added sparkle. Then I rolled up some TP and mounted it in an X pattern and sponged with matching purple ink. I thought the X was good for respresenting the cancer to go away!! I wish the best for him and his family!

I really like those rose images and the way you added the glitter to them. I have to ask, What is TP?

Hi! I'm answering the question you left on the Stampin Sisters in Christ blog. Your entry does not have to be a card, but should follow the challenge theme. Thanks for your interest!

What a nice thing you are doing for your friend's dad. I hope he is able to beat the cancer!

You've done a wonderful job with all the symbolism on this card, and of course your use of toilet paper is awesome too!
