Thinking Of You For Creative Expressions

Hey up lovely folks, so yesterday I posted a make for Creative Expressions and it is your lucky day 'coz I have another one to share with you today to finish off the November DT makes using the Umount Winter Flower stamp set.

It's an ATC and I wanted to share with you the making of this one.

You Will Need:
Corrugated cardboard
Clear embossing powder
Threaded button
Heat tool

Step 1 - Make The ATC

Tear the cardboard to ATC size (3.5" x 2.5") and remove the top layer to show the corrugations. Then add a rough coating of Gesso, don't be afraid to splodge it on unevenly.

Step 2 - Clear Emboss The Flowers

On a spare piece of white card clear emboss one of the flower stamps from the Winter Flowers Stamp set.

Step 3 - Add Some Colour

Paint on some colour from the Lava Red Cosmic Shimmer Mist and wipe off excess mist with a cloth.

Step 4 - Cut Out A Heart

Make yourself a heart template from spare paper and draw out the heart shape over your image, then cut it out.

Step 5 - Add The Sentiment

Stamp out one of the sentiments from the Winter Flower stamp set with the Archival Jet Black ink pad and trim it to fit the ATC.

Step 6 - Put It All Together

Stick the heart and sentiment to the ATC and finish with the threaded button. The Cosmic Shimmer glue works a treat, even with the button.

Thanks for popping in.

Catch you later.
