Thinking of You / Funky Background

Finally!
You get so many different looks with
different backgrounds
Take a Ziploc bag and place a piece of heavy
CS inside. Make your CS just slightly
smaller to fit snug in a the Ziploc.
Now take white glue and randomly draw
a design onto the Ziploc bag.
Set aside for approx. one hour.
Then cover with different embossing
powders and heat until melted.
cut any remaining plastic away.
Have Fun! xo

Interesting technique Dorothy.
Forgive me for asking what is probably an obvious question but doesn't it smell awful when the bag melts?

Hello Everyone!

I wish I could take credit for this technique but I can't.
I learned this technique a few years ago. I don't remember where.
The only thing I did to change it was to use a few different embossing powders.

Cheers,

Dorothy


P.S. I don't think the plastic burning smelled too bad Max. I don't burn it all. I cut out a lot of it.
