Paper Tole Technique

Paper Tole? 
Paper tole is a layering technique.  I've used it before.  This flower image lends itself really well to the layering technique.  I stamped, colored and punched out 3 of the large flowers.

After cutting the petals to the centers, I glued the first flower down to the paper, then layered the other two on top of it, curling the petals back, and placing small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals under the petals to lift them. It gives really nice lift.

I also hand colored and used dimensionals under pieces of the other flowers as well.

It looks great in person, but looking at it here, I think I'll go back and add some "lifted" leaves to add some dimension as well.

The materials I used:
