Backgrounds with Recycled Paper Towels
by Dianne Jonhson - DT Magenta



I love to play with Nuance, and when I do, I make lots of background cards at once. Recently I was making some backgrounds for Christmas cards, and I was cleaning up after each one with a paper towel.

 

You will need:
White cardstock 
Glue Stick
Brayer
Paper Towel
And Magenta's Nuance Powder:

  

1- Since it had lots of lovely Nuance colors on it, this paper towel was just too pretty to throw away.
  
3- You will then have 2 lovely pieces of paper towel to work with.


2- Paper towels usually have 2 plys. When your paper towel is dry, separate the plys by pulling them apart carefully.

4- Apply glue stick adhesive to a piece of cardstock.

5- Carefully place one of your paper towel pieces onto the prepared cardstock, and smooth it down.

7- Repeat Steps 4-6 with your second piece of paper towel. You now have 2 beautiful pieces of cardstock to use as you wish on a card.
6- Use a brayer to flatten the paper towel to the cardstock. This will smooth it further, and make sure that it adheres to the adhesive.






 

 Voilà! Happy creation!
