#techniquethursday - more embossing


I'm back with another twist on embossing today.  I've already showed you how to dry emboss with a  bigshot machine and to emboss with embossing powder and a heat tool.  This time I'm going to show you a twist of dry embossing with ink to really make the texture pop.  All you need is an embossing folder, ink (water based) and a big shot machine.... oh and some card.


 I chose the Honeycomb embossing folder, whisper white card stock as my base and Daffodil Delight as my ink pad.  I inked up the flat side of the embossing folder.  This is the side that will have the pattern indented rather than raised.  After ensuring the ink covered the folder well I carefully prepared the sandwich of whisper white in the the folder and ran it through the bigshot.  It's important to try and not slide the card  around on the ink - or you might miss out on some of the base card colour coming through.  Once you run it through the bigshot you'll find that the raised image stands out that little bit stronger because its in a contrasting colour.


To finish off the card I added an extra layer of midnight muse card, some matching ribbon and a cute little punched out cupcake using the create a cupcake stamp set and cupcake builder.  I love the contrasting white card showing through yellow ink.  It really helps the embossed pattern stand out.

Have you tried this technique before?  I'd love to see what you've made.  Leave a link to a picture in the comments below.

Happy crafting.
