This technique popped in my head one night when I could not sleep. I do not know if it is a real technique or not but, when I tried it, I liked the results. This is now the 2nd time I have hosted this fun technique.

Using a folder that you use in a Big Shot or some type of machine like it, ink only the top inside of your folder with an ink pad. Lay one sheet of toilet paper in the folder (I used 2 ply). Now run it thru your machine.

You will end up with a cool looking background for your 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ATC. You will need to add it to a sturdy backing. You will now add to your background to make your ATC any way you want

You might want to use acid-free tissue paper if you care about your card lasting more than 10 years.

I tried but the impression doesn't catch well on toilet paper, is it possible to use kitchen roll as it's sturdier? Or is it meant to be like that (not a "perfect" print)?

Could you use tissue paper instead of toilet paper? I haven't tried anything yet, just wondering :)

Might it not be too thin? Maybe I should try that too.

Mine came out just fine. Maybe try a different folder for your impression & see if that helps. If that doesn't help, I am OK with trying tissue paper.

Thank you, I will try. (I already had an idea with certain folder :D so I was stuck with that.)

Tuutis 07/31/2019 #

Yes, different folder makes much better results :) Thank you for helping <3.

I am glad it worked out for you.
