Stamp Man challenge 20 and April ATC's

The theme over at The Stamp Man Challenge Blog this fortnight is "Embossing" and it is chosen by Neil their newest Dt member. So this is my take on the Challenge. I made an ATC card. The background is done by layering UTEE 3 times then combing Obsidian Midnight Sapphire through it with the heat gun on. Finally Morning Glory Azure Teal Moonglow is sprinkled on the hot base and heated. The butterfly is cut from a napkin in my Napkin Collage kit from US Artquest and layered into the background with another layer of UTEE clear. The branches are from the Tim Holtz bird stamp, inked with brown ink and stamped into the hot UTEE creating a bit of indention. I love the way it came out especially the background. I am entering this into The Stamp Man Challenge # 20 "Embossing". Next project I have completed today are my ATC's for The Stamp Man ATC April swap. The Theme this month is "Birds". Here are mine.

The bottom one is stamped onto material and then stitched with beads, wire and thread trim. The top 2 are done using a Napkin collage kit. The one to the left is stamped then layered with the bird and the one to the left is layered then stamped.


I was able to spend the entire day at home today catching up on my projects due to our weekend plans being canceled last minute. So it was a very productive day. Now I am off to do some blog hopping. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping in. Angela
