a Whisper and a Shout ;)

I received some 'Tyvek' paper
in my Design Team pack from
Boy is it fun to use!
So I used the 'Tyvek' paper as the background for this ATC.
I screwed it up, then pressed it out flat again, next I rubbed my Distress Ink 'walnut stain' over the paper, which caught on all of the creases. Then I lightly sprayed with water, sprinked a little bit of embossing powder, heated with my heat gun which made it curl up and put a few small holes in the paper.
then I brayered it flat & I cut it to ATC size and started to construct my design.
other bits I used arre, Collections Vintage Wallpaper printed paper, Collections Chipboard branch, Collections word and my sewing machine

and now onto the
