CFC69: Incorporate embossing (either kind) into your clean and simple project
And once again, we are sponsored by the FABULOUS Simon Says Stamp! The winner of this week's challenge will not only receive a gift certificate to Simon's store, but will also win a guest designer spot at CAS-ual Fridays! Fun stuff!
I started off with a piece of plaid patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween collection, and embossed it with this texture plate from Lil' Inker Designs. I added some distress ink over the top of the wood grain to help define it a little bit.
Then I masked the wood grain so that only the center rectangle was showing, and applied black distress ink inside the rectangle. I stamped the spider web, spider, and sentiment in Versamark ink (only after using my Embossing Buddy so that the powder wouldn't stick to my inked background), and embossed each in a different color powder. It's hard to see in the pictures, but the spider is embossed with a glittery embossing powder.
I added a simple ribbon tab, some tiny staples, and colored the diamond on the spider's back orange to match the ribbon:
