Embossing with Ink and embossing folders.

Hi there..... Let me start with introducing myself.... My name is MarionE and I'm so proud to be one of the new Inkettes here. You will hear and read more about me later.... but today I'm just jumping in with a fun technique for you all.

Embossing with Ink:

I love to emboss papers. But sometimes I want them to have another color so they match better with the colors that I used in my coloring.
So I take my Big Shot by Sizzix and an embossing folder
I take the inkpad I want and start coloring the side with the increased pattern and rub the inkpad softly over the pattern. Make sure not to add to much pressure otherwise you will color the underground as well.

Then place the paper on the normal way in the folder

And run the folder through the machine. Make sure to do it slow and give the ink the time to get into the paper. You might run the embossing folder several times through the machine without lifting it out of it’s place!

After you take the mal out you can clean it the way you clean your stamps.

 You can do the same technique, but then work on the imprinted side of the embossing folder!
Here are both results. You can also use other dies to cut shapes from this papers.

Now I sure hope that you can do something with this fun technique and show it to us on how you used it in one of your cards that you use to enter in our fabulous challenges HERE.

Make sure to check in regularly... my teamies have some great techniques and ideas ready for you... and next time.. I have a super duper fun technique ready for you with some fun inky text stamps and one of the image stamps!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you leave us a comment about what you think of it and see you soon!

With love and fun
