Embossed ATC

Today, I finally found the time to do some crafting and I had a great time! Here’s an ATC I made:

I know, this is a song quote that I’ve used before (here and here), but it just keeps inspiring me.

I’d like to enter this ATC into the following challenges:

Now, let me introduce you to my favourite technique: heat embossing. I love using this technique in my work, the melting powder is like magic, alchemy! For example, I often tend to create a heat embossed border as a finishing touch to my atc, or I heat emboss the main image or (a part of) the background. I also love to use heat embossing to create a cracked glass look.

This time I tried something new: (triple) heat embossing combined with dry embossing and sanding. Really fun to do! You can watch the tutorial here.

Stamps used

  • Heart: Tim Holtz
  • Sentiment: Scrolls Work
