Another ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha Dictionary Challenge where this week the letter is E.
I couldn't think of any of my stamps that began with E so read through my dictionary and liked the look of Emboss, Emerald and Enjoy and thought I'd combine the three. The background is a mix of Mowed Lawn Distress and Fresh Green Versacolour mixed with water and mopped up. I've dry embossed this with Tim Holtz's Checkerboard Embossing Folder, swiped over a little Versamark and then heat embossed it with Gold EP.
My (main) chosen word is ENJOY so the focus is this Oak House Studio stamp embossed with Verdigris EP. The ATC is just finished with the torn dictionary definition and an alcohol inked white vinyl Thicker - Pesto, Meadow and a smidge of Sailboat Blue.
My dictionary is not a standard one - it's designed for foreign students studying other subjects in English, so the definitions are sometimes a bit strange. But at least this time I did find a colour to base my design on and when I saw emboss, well I had to include embossing as well.
Hope you like and thanks for looking. Thank you also for all your kind comments on my previous ATCs - they are very much appreciated!!
