Wonderful Webbing

Creative Impressions has a great product called Web Ribbon. This 2" wide woven poly-cotton blend is a nice way to add colour without too much weight. You can spray through this with your shimmer mists for a funky background pattern. It will also take embossing powders if you keep your heat gun at a distance. Simply lay your webbing on scrap paper, press your embossing ink pad down across the length of your webbing. Then move webbing to a new piece of scrap paper and pour on embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat. You can go back and put embossing powder on your original scrap paper and heat it. It will create a broken embossed background. This product sells for $1 /yard and we presently have it in: Fuchsia, Lime Green, Aqua, Black, Brown and White. We also have a Christmas Red and Green on it's way in.The above card was made using Stamp Barn's Cone Flower by Sunshine Designs and some pink flocking.

This is a sample of the white mesh embossed gold, and a Magenta flower embossed and tiny happy birthday sticker words. To the right is the leftover scrap piece that I embossed.

Happy Stamping
