Cardz 4 Guyz Helen has chosen for the theme 'No Patterned/Designer Paper'. An opportunity to get out your inks, embossing folders, making a mess, if needed creating your own backgrounds or once again going clean and simple. I saw a technique on You Tube I wanted to try, it has partially worked but not as great a success as I hoped for. I adhered 3 strips of aluminium tape to a piece of white card, I smeared my Cuttelbug folder with Black Soot ink, embossed the prepared card, Most of the ink came off in the drying process. I don't think I'll be trying it again.
Materials used -
White, red and black card stock. Aluminium tape (DIY) Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, ribbon and black gems. The stamp is from a very old set from Tandastamps, stamped onto red card with Memento Black in pad.
