UTEE - fun with mica

At our May HRH Amanda card class we worked with UTEE and a Melting Pot and moulds. What fun! UTEE (Ultra thick embossing enamel) comes in such a variety of shades - who knew? To make the UTEE more durable and flexible we added Mica to the mixture.

At class we made two items each, an Eiffel Tower, which we used in class, and a homework project - a Column.

CS is Cream Curious Metals, travel-themed scrapbook paper edged with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and matted it onto a lovely chocolate brown card. I used a brown shipping tag in the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder, and then dragged the Antique Linen Distress inkpad over the script. I pressed the UTEE Column into a Brilliance Gold inkpad to give it some dimension.

Embellishments are a wonderful Petaloo flower with pearl brad and brass wording.

Wonderful comments! I haven't used the UTTE for a long time. I'd like to try making that column.
