Good morning! It's time for another Friends of Speedy TV challenge. The challenge for today, if you choose to accept it, is to use chipboard. You will find challenge number 40 on this page. I hope you play along, as you there is always a prize involved!! Since we are in October now and just released some really cool Halloween stamps, I couldn't resist getting them out again. Who am I kidding? They never left my desk (wink, wink)! Anyhoo, the challenge isn't about Halloween, it's about chipboard. I wasn't satisfied with my selection of chipboard images and shape, so I made my own.
I got out some lightweight chipboard and my new Spellbinder's Shapeabilities Spider Web and created my own chipboard spider. I got a little tricky with my embossed web image too. I die cut the web and then covered the die cut with Versamark. Then I turned it upside down (Versamark side down) on my card base and used my brayer to transfer the ink. Then I sprinkled embossed powder over it and heated it up. I love the splotchy look that comes from the imperfect transfer and not-so-fine embossing powder. I think it matches the distressed look of the font on my Boo! sentiment from I'm Going Batty. I finished up my card with a few more details like the embossed thread from which the spider is hanging, a couple of rounded corners and some sponging around the edges of the card base.
I thank you for coming by and hope you have a fabulous day!
