Here's a card that had me thinking outside my usual comfort zone, thanks to the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. It's a technique challenge, to use inked embossing folders. Here's what I ended up with:
I've never done this before and my first few attempts were not hitting the mark, so I switched gears completely and used a brand new (to me at least!) cuttlebug folder called "Spider Stew" which was a gift from my best friend. Thanks Krista! I'm so glad she gave this to me because it's not one I would probably pick out for myself, but I really like it! I inked it lightly with a black ink pad and it came out grey with white spider webs. What a cool technique.
The images are all cut files from the Silhouette Studio cut with my Cameo. I sprayed the fence with gray mist and inked all the edges of the other cuts to give it an aged feel. I made my own sentiment with an alphabet stamp set (I guess it's truly a hand-stamped sentiment since I was winging it, so it's fitting for this challenge :)
Thanks for looking!
