My crafting has taken me to fall projects but it is still in the 90's here in Chicago! I love me some summer, but I love me some fall even more. I look forward to the cooler temperatures, fall clothes, pumpkin spice, and Halloween!
I have a card today that was a result of some experimenting with different techniques. For the background I used Whimsy Stamp's Broken Web Embossing Folder. I inked up the paper using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides in Prize Ribbon and Salvaged Patina. Then I rubbed the Prize Ribbon ink directly on the embossing folder and ran it through my machine. I loved how it gave it more interest and depth. I inked up another piece of card stock using Salvaged Patina and stamped the new Trick or Treat stamp set in Versamark and embossed it in black. I added grit paste and crackle paste to the edges of the sentiment. Once it was dry I rubbed brown ink over the edges.
I think the combo of the grit paste and texture paste are so cool! The spiders are from the Spiders and Webs Die set. I added the filigree corners from the ATC Book Die Set. They were given a coating of crackle paste too. For a finishing touch I added some tulle and an old tea stained tag.
Be sure to check Whimsy Stamps to see all of the new releases! They are so much fun!
