Blank Canvas

It has been raining the last two days, so I haven't been able to garden. Ordinarily I wouldn't let a little rain stop me~but I am in a cast up to my knee. I partially tore some ligaments  in my foot.
Scary thought~I was thinking about adding some stamping to my cast. I really want to heat emboss on it but I don't want to waste embossing powder.

Tim Times 10~Day 7 Challenge

Today is day 7 of Tim Times Ten Grand Giveaway  Challenge at Stampin Dymonz Creative Space.
 Today's challenge is  an acetate tag. The acetate must be dry embossed. It must be inked. Your tag must be two-layered, include an image, and you must use some type of "dimensional" product to embellish your image -- fun flock, flower soft, heat embossing, etc. The weather  is supposed to be cold in Baltimore today; therefore, your tag should depict a cold scene -- could be winter or fall and does not have to include snowmen/snow, just ensure you make a good representation of colder weather. The acetate should be from some packaging that you may have at your craft spot in order that you recycle the plastic and help prevent us from killing our own planet with non-biodegradable materials such as plastic...
My tag did not scan well at all and my son has my camera for the day.
For my acetate tag~ I used recycled clear x-ray film. I dry-embossed it using a cuttlebug folder and sanded the embossed image.I used Staz-On ink at the top, bottom and sides of the acetate tag. I colored the snowman with Bic Markers ans Highlighted some of the words with dimensional paint. I used Paper Studio paper for the 2nd layer.
