On the subject of ATCs - Two More!

 Hi Again!,

I nearly forgot two more ATCs I made for a swap event over at Ditzy-Craftymessers. The theme  is Vintage. 

The ATCs were inspired by an embossing folder and I wanted to create the effect of  a worn Ormalue clock.  I inked the inside of the embossing folder with distress ink and spritzed the paper with some water to help get a deeper image. The first attempt I rubbed some gold effect ink  around the image and touched up the embossed image with tumbled glass. This gave a coarse, worn effect.
ATC number two was given the same treatment but I added a stage with some clear embossing powder across the centre of the embossed image and gold embossing powder on the edges. When I heat set the powders I got this great,  almost enamel effect.

Two little beauties, I think :-)

Thanks again for stopping by
