I haven't used my paper crimper in years and thought it would be great for this challenge for lots of texture!!!! I embossed my large mat using a Darice folder. I then cut a piece of cs, rounded the corners and then ran through the crimper. I attached my popsicle stick with glue dots. I then gave my popsicle man some eyes and drew a mouth free hand and popped him up over my stick. Our teapot party this week is for a little guy named Austin with some major health issues as well as being blind; so he will be literally "feeling" the love and happiness coming his way :) I hope it's not too hot in Texas so my popsicle man melts.............TFL ladies.

My paper crimper is definitely a dud - I don't think even when I first got it it would have produced anything as well-defined as this. I really like the crazed crackle background too - you certainly have lots of fun texture here.
