Technique #1 - Peeled Paper

By Bevlea Ross


* 4 or 5 papers in various text types. e.g. dictionary pages, foreign text, crosswords, music, technical etc.,
* glue stick
* 7.5" x 5.5 inches of cardstock or chipboard (this will make one large card background or 4 ATCs)
* Distress inks in three complemtry colours (I used Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Marigold)
* Sponge
* Masking Tape
* Bone Folder
* Paper Towels
* Water spray bottle (not a fine mister)
* Images and embellishments to finish your ATC
* Scissors/Trimmer


  1. Oops, I posted my comment under "11 - Free Image" instead of here ... sorry. Here it is again.

    I have used the peeled paper technique on an ATC due for another swap and have posted on my blog- . I've used paints instead inks on the background and it's a little difficult to see the peeled paper through it because I used glaze paints that seem to reflect. If I get a chance I'll have another go and post again. This is going to be fun.

  2. This rocks! I'm sending you a subliminal message: "you must trade with need to trade with Kathy!" LOL!!
