Have you SEEN some of the new embossing folders that are out there? Wow the effects can be amazing. I picked up a new one by Spellbinders --called fabric weave...its like crinkles then smoothed out paper.
I thought the embossed paper looked a bit like beachy sand...so I inked it with some antique linen distress ink. I stamped and added some wink of stella to the flip flops, heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and mounted the panel off set on a neutral card base.
The challenge runs til June 25th. Click on the link above for details.
