"Something new" at FwATCs

Another fortnight's challenge at FwATCs has just started and "Something new" has to be used on your ATCs. That could be something new you got as a Christmas present... anyhow: it has to be something you have never used before.

I used my new Sizzix (yippeeh!) with the TH Alterations die "ATC&Corners" and new stamps from the "Sarah's Choice" set from Indigo Blu and Paper Artsy's "ink and the dog" set.

This time I used some heavy artist's paper, because I love the effect of stamping on structured paper (you can very well see it in the film-strip-image: those ink-spared white areas, where normally would be a clean black silhouette).

I used the masking technique for applying the background textures and words. Only the "Dream" quote was stamped over the image and heat embossed with black embossing powder, which I also used for the ATC corners.

I really enjoy going to the movies. Capturing cine films are like dreams that are as close to reality as possible. I admire directors who are able to transform their dreams into mere "realities" and drag viewers right in! Good films do just that - don't they?

Hope to see your ATCs, where you used "Something new" on! Maybe you will be the one to get to take the Top3 blinkie!!
