I made this box for a chaLLenge I saw asking you to use a TechNiQue you'd never done before...but now...I have NO idea where I was when I saw it :(
But...it did inspire this...
which I can link up to the AllSoRts ChaLLenge because it has a fLoWeR :)
I used UltRa ThiCk EmBoSsing EnaMel...is that right?...GoOd GoLLy...I shouldn't have been using it if I don't even know what it is!...UTEE ...ok...so...I am NOT a TeChniQue-Y gal....I am plain jane..NOT all ArTSy-faRtSy...
Things like this scare me...I tore pieces of old book print into tiny pieces, mod podged them onto cardstock...cover the whole thing with Versamark DaZZLe ( you can see in the top picture how it's a little sparkly) and then heat embossed the UTEE...and then did the inking and embossing part again....and again....and again...and then...because it still wasn't even (here is where that NOT being TecHniQue-Y thing was REALLY coming into play) I heat embossed it yet again...so there are like 5 coats on there...I thought FOR SURE it would do that cool crackle glass thing...ummmmm....no.
But it's still kinda pretty and I did use my RoLLed fLowers die for the first time...and I like the chunky gLiTTer on the rose..it looks festive...I'm thinking that it'll be a good Christmas embeLlie :)
I'm also linking up to...
