UTEE, Grungeboard and Friendly Plastic

I recently bought some platinum UTEE, and I have to say I don't know how I lived without it! I LOVE it! (Yep, I know, I need to get out more). These ATCs are the product of my experimentation with the UTEE and a few other bits and pieces.

The top one was done by stamping into the platinum UTEE and then using metallic rub-ons over the top. The letters are Grungeboard which I've covered with copper embossing powder.









The second ATC has a copper acrylic paint background which I've stamped over in black Stazon. The skull and the letters are Grungeboard which I covered with platinum UTEE. I then stamped into the UTEE on the skull and added some Stickles in the swirls.








For the third one I created the background using pearlescent watercolour paints which have a kind of two-tone light reflecting effect (which obviously doesn't show up too well in the photo). I covered with with three layers of clear UTEE and stamped into it with silver ink. I've used a watch face and created wings using Friendly Plastic and added some small gems, and the words are stamped into Friendly Plastic and emphasised with a bit of Stickles.











For the final one, I created the background using distress inks spritzed with water and rubber stamping on one side and acrylic paint which I heated until it bubbled on the other side. I drew the woman using pen and pencil on top of some book text, and the letters are stamped into Friendly Plastic.

All brill - love your drawing of the woman on book text - I thought it was a rubber stamped image at first.

These are fantastic! I've owned UTEE & friendly plastic for over a year and just started playing with the UTEE this past week. You've inspired me to dig out the friendly plastic soon! I adore your work!
