UTEE Alphabet

UTEE stands for Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and is a granulated version of the powder you often see in craft shops for making 3D stamped images. In stamp embossing you stamp the image and, while the ink is still wet, shake some of the powder over it and off again (like glitter on glue when you were a child) and then heat it with a heat tool to melt and fix it.

UTEE is a thicker version of this but you can cover all the card and keep adding layers to make a glossy tile and embed objects into it. There are lots of tutorials online if you want to explore. So these are all separate tiles, each of an alphabet letter with both the stamped (mostly) and embedded image (certainly) relating to the letter.
Time for a close up...

Ok, enough of the alphabets for now!
