uk crafters challenge


This is my challenge card for the uk crafters thread on the cricut message board , We had to use dry embossing of some sort so i used one of my (never used ) fiskars embossing plates . I found out with a bit of jiggling plates and shims , that it would work in my bigshot ! I would never have even tried them if it had nt been for this challenge . I knew immediately which one to use ,because i ve had this spider image in my head for the last few days - I love him !- it's one of Sam's creepy crawlie circles - so the web was just perfect for it . I rubbed over with a silver ink pad to make the embossing stand out . I also added black card candy which i also rubbed with the inkpad to make them look like metal studs . the message and the border are cuttlebug embossing folders .

I think this card is lovely. How did you achieve the spider web? I have never seen just greeting for the embossing in Cuttlebug are there more?
A really good abstract effort. Top of the class well done!
