Hi, for today's technique you will need:
2) Clear UTEE
3) Embossing ink pad/Versamark or Gluepad
4) Heat Gun
5) Your kids' toy (a train or car)
For most LOs including my husband, I try not to go for the girly look. And I try (my best) to add some texture or boyish features.
Here for my chipboard. I paint over them.
Once completely dried, I press them onto the embossing pad.
While it is still hot and the UTEE still soft, run a toy train/car over it. we want the 'tracks' marks on the chipboard.
And it will look like this. My train 'track' is not so rough... so I get smooth lines. Which is fine!
