Welcome to my papercrafting world. I hope you enjoy the journey.

Today I'm sharing my journey into my melt pot once again brought on by a challenge over at Paper Artsy. It's been a bit since I've played with Utee so I thought I would give a few "new" to me techniques a try. From right to left ..... I have an ATC card that I made from the inspiration provided by Nikki here http://blog.paperartsy.co.uk/2017/04/2017-6-utee-accents-by-nikki-acton.html   This was the hardest one to do, because ok don't laugh but I really dipped this in my melting pot not once but several times to get the layers Nikki described.  Not once did I thing to pour the utee on it and melt it with my heat gun, that is until I was finished and was lining them up to take pictures I have two pretty burn't fingers to prove it. I used my Fresco paints right on my stamps to stamp the first layer, then a circle stamp for my second layer, then a splash of inky pool for the splatters.
Next up is a mold I made using the two part epoxy for the melt pot, After these butterflies hardened I dry brushed some snowflake on them to bring out the detail. For my third try I used my spellbinders like in this video   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-aAe3JMJL4    shown the night the challenged was introduced.
That is it for now

These are fab Colleen. I know you said don't laugh but I did have a chuckle ---- it was the way you described the process more than you dipping it into the melted utee. Hope the fingers are not too painful. XX
