Manly ATCs

For Christie's Manly ATC swap. This swap was a pain in my patoot! I knew I wanted to use these TH stamps but I had a hard time getting everything where I wanted it & how I wanted it. I embossed the "flourish" thing w/distressed embossing powder. I've had this stuff for a while & never use it as I'm not sure how it's supposed to look. I hope when people get their ATCs they won't say "hey! Suzi embossing skills suck!" Maybe I should have added a note that the powder is supposed to be rough & flaky??? The truck was another disaster. I embossed it w/versamark & clear powder & liked the way it looked on SU's close to cocoa paper. So, I stamped 10-12 images & cut them all out. Then, I realized I stamped them on Creamy Carmel. It didn't look right. I tried everything to make them work but, in the end, restamped & recut w/the Close to Cocoa. Who wants 10 truck images in creamy carmel????
