Feel the heat

Carol and I are still playing with Di's new chippie shapes and today's technique was chosen to see how the board stands up to some heat - triple embossing. Even fairly substantial chipboard can warp with this technique and UTEE is unforgiving stuff if you try to flex a piece to flatten it out. You might not have been aiming for the cracked glass look but it's what you'll end up wit if you're not careful!

Here's a little "arty" peep at my project - full picture on the Tando blog.
