3. Take a clear sheet of heat resistant acetate, wiped with talc and carefully stamp using black adriondack,

both the cottage the the car stamp. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder, gently tap off excess

and very carefully heat emboss it.

You can also instead of framing your image as above, mount it on a card or

use it as a wrap for a battery operated candle.
