Good Things are worth waiting for

Hello everyone!
I want to remind you about our current challenge at the Dream Factory
The movie and theme for this month is 

"No limits" - just make something you enjoy, or what meets your needs.

I took inspiration from the movie poster and created this masculine birthday card using the hot glue embossing technique. It consists of using a hot glue gun, embossing powder and an embossing heat gun....
...but check out this video (by Connie McFarlane), she shows it much better than I can explain!

Unlike the video, I made my background with acrylic paints and only then applied the hot glue. Since I had also stenciled and the paints don't dry very quickly on acrylic, the embossing powder stuck to some of those areas as well, but I still thought the result was interesting. I added a few splashes of gold to the strips and heated them again. Added the sentiments and glued the strips on.

I had used the technique before here and here. I really like the texture it gives - I think I should use it more often....

A closer view of the texture...
