Inking embossing folders
Karen and I had both watched a great video from Jennifer McGuire on using ink with an embossing folder several weeks ago. Unfortunately we couldn't find this video again but here is how we did this card front.
First I taped the old olive cardstock to the raised side of the embossing folder using removable adhesive. I ran it through the Big Shot and then opened the folder and covered the other side of the folder with garden green ink. Closed up the folder and ran it through again to get the green ink pressed onto the negative part of the image.
The ink cleans easily off the embossing folder.
The butterfly was also cut using the Big Shot.
I would have never put garden green and old olive together but it was what I had with me in dye inks and I really love how they came out. It is such fun to just play and try out different techniques without having to do a particular project.
Thanks for stopping by today!
