Hello everyone! I'm so thrilled to be a part of the 2019 team! For this month's Dare, I made an Acrylic Trading Coin (ATC) and a clear tag - both are embossed with Emerald Creek's fabulous embossing powders!


I got these acrylic discs on-line and had an epiphany: Acrylic Trading Coins! The secret is using just enough product to add some punch while allowing the acrylic to show through. I first printed the word 'beautiful' backwards to use as a template so that the finished embossing would be right side up showing through the bottom of the coin. I traced over the letters with my pen, moving the paper around to space the letters out. Then embossed.


Then I stamped a butterfly timepiece on the front and embossed around the edge.


For the tag, I cut a piece of crafting plastic. Then I stamped my images and embossed. And I went around the edge and added rusty wire for the hanger.


I really love using acrylic and plastic - it gives it a nice, clean look and looks a little modern and more artsy.  And the embossing powders! Chunky ~ luscious ~ versatile!




These coins are thick - not the thin paper-punched type we've all seen! 


Love the colors and dimension that you can create with these chunky powders!


Thanks for stopping by and viewing my maiden project for Emerald Creek! Don't forget to play along in our challenge!
