Vintage UTEE Card

Hi Guys,

Over on the Paperartsy blog this fortnight the challenge is Resin/UTEE.  This is something I very rarely use - I don't have any Resin but I did have some UTEE which hadn't been used in an age so I dug it out to have a play!

I made this vintage style card using some Paperartsy stamps designed by Lin Brown:


I stamped the leaf from stamp set ELB33 onto cream cardstock using archival ink and then used about 4 layers of UTEE - which went everywhere!!

I waited until it was cool (plenty of cleaning up to do whilst waiting!) then gently bent the card to crack the UTEE and used potting soil archival ink to distress and age it further.

I created a background using infusions in Sleight Blue and Rusty Car and added some stamping from the same Lin Brown plate.


I mounted by background panel onto black cardstock and wrapped some twine around it then mounted it onto a card blank.

Then I added my UTEE leaf circle on top using foam pads to give extra dimension.


There are some great projects over on the Paperartsy blog HERE so make sure you check them out!

Thanks for stopping by,

Claire x
