This is another background technique that uses a few products we've used before in our classes.... Wax Paper, Embossing Folders and an embossing machine (Big Shot or Cuttlebug etc.) and Distress Ink Pads.  I have also utilised some Angelina Fibre in this class as well although it's pretty hard to see.  It's on the first atc, Bling out your dead and I've captured some Angelina Fibre in copper between the card stock and the waxed paper before I've embossed and coloured it.  I've also added some loose fibres underneath the picture.  Unfortunately this is another of those atc's that has to be seen in the flesh to appreciate all the shimmer of the fibres.  Yes girls in my classes, there is a new quote sheet out, number 22!

"Bling out your dead"...

"Drama Llama"... (I've also used some
Angelina Film under the image on this one
and across the front of the image too)


"Unloved flower"...

A simple class this fortnight using some of my stash of quilting cotton fabrics as backgrounds.  I like the contrast between the stark black and white images (that can be coloured in or left black and white) against the brightly coloured fabric background.  As long as you use a good quality 
double-sided tape to attach your images to the fabric, they will stay there with no drama 
(I use Stylus brand double-sided tape exclusively as it is just so good!). 

The stamps below are all from Stampotique and I just had to use my new little
dog cube which has four little mutts on it.   You can use whatever
you want for embellishments and the first two atc's below both have hearts
that have been covered with Angelina Film and then heated.  The wings
on the very bottom atc "Ethereal Spirit" are also German Scrap
wings that have Angelina Film adhered to it and then heated.

"My dog"...

"together forever"...


"Ethereal Spirit"...
