My Handsome Men ATCs

With these atcs I tried my hand at soot or smoke stamping. I held 8.5x11 cardstock over a candle flame that is smoky. Moved it around until I got a marble affect on the paper. You don't have to be so close to the flame, just enough for the smoke to spread out over the paper. On one atc I stamp the image of these two men right into the smoked area and it gave it a negative image. The other one, I stamped the same image using a grey Stampin'Up Classic Ink pad. I sprayed both with a fixature to seal the smoke to keep it from smudging. Then I embellished them. Enjoy
