Embossing with ink

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 to to add pressure otherwise you color the underground as well.

Then place the paper on the normal way in the embossing 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 embossing folder 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.

Have fun and make sure to show your results with this technique!

Background stamping

Background stamping Sky

Today's Tutorial is about creating a stamped background sky behing your image.

I choose the beautiful image Swan Love from Shelly's Images.
You can find this lovely image HERE

Print and color the image.
Print the image again on plain white paper.

 Cut out the second printed image.

Mask the colored image with the plain one.

At www.shellysimages.com you find a free image of clouds.
Print it out on firm cardstock and cut it out.
Place the clouds over the masked image and work the edges with the stamping ink.
Replace the cloud and ink again. You can use various colors to create a cloudy sky.

Here is the result after inking the background.
I used some yellow to create a sunrise feeling.
Save the cut out mask for the next time!

I made a loopy lace gift box with the image in it.
This is a different kind of wedding card.

Hope you all like this technique and give it a try and show us at the CDAC Group!

Thanks for looking and leaving a lovely comment.
