|For me, there's always a fine line between having fun and "about to go crazy" with DIY.|
I got this idea from Supermom.
I embossed the train and the "for time date place stamp" so they'd be more opaque and for some dimension. Embossing is pretty simple, almost as easy as glue and glitter, the only difference is you have to heat up the "glitter" with a blow dryer type tool. Here's how to emboss: use a watermark ink pad, stamp image on paper, pile embossing powder over image, pick up paper with both hands (keep it flat) and vibrate paper for full coverage, dump excess powder, turn on embossing tool, aim at image, hold it about 5 in from paper and move tool in a circular motion. Watch the magic as the powder melts!
