Wow! Look at me – playing along with a challenge!! OCL Challenge #57.
Oh the things one can do with a clean stamp table! ; )
The Challenge: Clean & Simple – Embossing
Not sure that it is Clean or even Simple, but it is Embossed – so we’re lookin good!! Ok, so definitely not so much on the clean side, but it actually really was simple to do!!
First I sponge-grunged up a Manila Craft Tag #8 with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint. I used embossing ink and Black Ranger Embossing Powder along with stamp sets Dandy Days and Life Is from Our Craft Lounge.
Obviously I’ve fallen onto the dyed seam binding crinkle ribbon bandwagon – What?? A cute ribbon that I can dye to match my project and it’s totally affordable??? WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL OF MY STAMPING LIFE? (I also used the same inks as above to dye the ribbon – and Black Soot Distress Ink, of course, to get the black ribbon – I LOVE love that it dyes it TRUE black, not greenish or purplish, but BLACK BLACK!!).
I am also falling in love with these tags… but I must ask, What does one do with these tags??
Now go emboss yourself something!! : )
