That was the challenge for last Monday's CCEE challenge. Use address labels in some way on a card. I chose to stamp and emboss a large background (Bamboo II) on a sheet of labels. Then when you peel and stick them onto your project, you space them apart a little to allow the background color to show, creating a grid effect. I have to admit I was a little doubtful about this technique, but am rather pleased with how it turned out.
Recipe: stamps- Bamboo II, Oriental Gardens (ginko leaf)...both SU, sentiment (PSX); Ink- black archival, VersaMark; paper- black, off-white; accessories- adhesive backed address labels, black embossing powder.
