When I take a new (for me) product for a test run, I usually do so on an ATC or tag. If I like the results I keep going, if I don't like the first results, it goes into the round file and I try again. This ATC happens to be a trial run for the TH Distress Stain-brushed pewter as well as the TH Snowflake Die that I recently purchased from The Funkie Junkie Boutique . I liked the results so no paper was harmed or disposed of in this process.
For the background I stamped portions of the tree from the Hung on a Tree stamp set from Red Rubber Designs and then heat embossed with clear ep. After embossing I applied brushed pewter Stain then removed the ep by placing a sheet of paper over the bg and ironing. When cool, I inked the background with DI in walnut stain. I distressed the edges and added brushed pewter stain.
The poinsettia (Hung on a Tree) was stamped on white paper that had been distress with DI in antique linen and vintage photo. I embossed the image with silver ep overheating it to look more like pewter than silver and mounted it on top of a flat die cut snowflake enhanced with glitter and brushed pewter stain and a dimensional die cut snowflake (TH) with a little platinum Stickles. The base layer is black cardstock edged with the brushed pewter stain.
