ATC Eye Candy!

here's a few more ATC to share. This time I thought I would include some that I have made experimenting with UTEE.

One of my favourite things to do is to heat distress layers on my ATC-Anything plastic that melts is fair game.

UTEE is one of my favourites as it gives such a nice thick colour blast to a card. Simone carries a range of colours -I think black, red and bronze are my favourites.

A lot of ribbons and trims are plastic/nylon and make lovely distressed accents if heated a little [or a lot!]. Tulle and nylon chiffon are particular faves of mine as they give a fabulous shredded look.They also look good layered and melted together with UTEE. Gold leaf flakes or glitter can also be added while still molten for additional detail. I think these cards make a nice change from purely paper ATC

If you decide to try these techniques,make sure you work in a well ventilated area to avoid inhaling fumes.
