I have never tried paper tole, but I have to tell you, I love it! For this layout, I stamped the nasturtiums 3 times - once on my background paper, and twice on cardstock. I colored the images with my copics, and cut out the flowers and leaves and adhered them with dimensionals. I cut the two flowers out for a 3rd layer and it really popped! This was a great technique for this stamp set, because I let the small vines just be on the first layer, so I didn't have to cut them out any. I'm sure I will be trying this one again.
