"Laugh" ATC by ~ Helena Johansson

Hi! Today I have an ATC to share. I have played with Donna's Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder, and I so love this stuff! You can do amazing things with it!

I started with a piece of paper, GCD Studios and Donna's Natural Beauty collection, Soaring, and cut it into ATC-size. I then used Emboss Gloss around the edges, dipped them into Embossing powder, color Leather. When heated, the color turns into a deep bronze color - just beautiful!

I then sprayed the paper with Smooch Spritz, colors Wood Stain and Evergreen and quickly sprinkled some more embossing powder on the wet ink and heated with heatgun. Now my piece of paper has splashes of bronze all over it.

Then I cut the words "a laugh is a smile that burst" from the 12x12 pad image sheet from the Natural Beauty collection. I painted the edges with emboss gloss and dipped them into embossing powder, and then i had a cool sentiment for my ATC.

Finally I painted some roses with white gesso and then dipped them into embossing powder (same color: Leather).

Did I mention how fun I had with this powder? Love it!

Thank you for stopping by today!
