A Pink & Gold Embossed Atc.

It's been a while since I've blogged, don't ask me where the time has gone,because I don't know,lol.
Here is an atc I made this morning as my entry for the challenge over at
The theme is "Embossing" so I thought I would take up the challenge. First I used distress ink to colour the card pink, then stamped the background. I then heated embossed the edges of the atc. For the main part of the atc I used one of the Tando arches,inking up the centre piece before stamping the fabby image by Lynne Perrella. For the frame of the arch I used a darker shade of ink to colour it, heat embossed 3 times, then while it was still warm I sprinkled some gold embossing powder on the frame ,tapped off the surplus and heated it up.
I'm also going to pop this atc in to the craft group I am in on facebook, we have a daily challenge over there and todays theme is to make anything and be pink....ok,so mine is pink and gold,lol.

Love especially that background stamp (besides the perfect embossing and the lovely face in the arched frame)!

Thanks for joining us at FwATCs this fortnight!

What a beautiful ATC... the golden arch is a wonderful frame for that fabulous LP image, and the background has such great texture. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fun With ATCs!
