Project UTEE

So here is a little project using my under utilized UTEE jar.  I saw this on line and though it was pretty cool.  First take you stamp, silicone work the best (there is no guarantee that it works with every stamp so be careful if you have a  favourite one that you don't want to ruin. 

Start by inking up your image, I used staz on ink and let it sit for a few minutes. 

Melt your UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder) in a heat pot, like this one.  Don't mix around too much or it gets bubbly and you don't want that.

Pour the UTEE over the image trying to cover it all, also trying not to pour it over the edge.  Let cool till just warm to the touch, then gently pull it off the stamp. 

And this is what you get, cool eh!  Nice image that can be used on an altered box, page, canvas etc.  Here is what I did with it.  I attached it to a mixed media canvas as the center piece. 

Definitely going to do this again!  It has a great affect.  Hope you all enjoy and share what you have made!
Love Jennifer
