Platinum UTEE 21st Card

I recently made this 6 x 6 Trifold card for a musical friend for his 21st Birthday.

I love the drama of the Tim Holtz 'David' stamp, the Wendy Vecchi Archival Reinker & Alcohol                                                      background and the UTEE heat embossed 21. 

The Background was made on Specialty Stamping Paper.  
I used a few drops of Aquamarine & Coffee Reinkers & Rubbing Alcohol 
with one drop of Pearl Alcohol Ink.
The Tim Holtz Stamps were Stamped in Jet Black Archival & Clear Heat Embossed.  
The face was masked off then the Tim Holtz Web Stencil was used with Antique Linen & Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  

The 21 & the ink splotch were made using Tim Holtz Stencils.  A mixture of platinum and clear UTEE was applied with the embossing dabber through the stencil & melted with a heat gun.

  Random Music stamps were added with Watering can Archival Ink. The Card base is Coredinations Cracked Kraft Cardstock. Matting with kraft card stamped with Cracked pattern.

                                            I went a bit crazy using UTEE over all sorts of stamping.

These two were over Tarnished Brass and Pewter Distress Stain. 
Love this mottled effect.
