Dry Embossing

These two cards use the technique of brayering the negative side of an embossing folder with a colour. You need to put lots of ink so that you get a really good colour when you put the folder through the Big Shot.

The embossing folder is the Elegant Bouquet from the current catalogue.

For this one I used melon mambo ink and layer whith elegant eggplant and whispere white. The ribbon is elegant eggplant scalloped ribbon from the catalogue.

The colours here are island indigo and pool party (two of the In Colours). After I embossed the card I then used the brayer with the lighter colour, pool party, across the embossed image. The ribbon is pool party ruffled ribbon, rather nice I think.

Both sentiments were from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes punched out with the word window and mounted on to the modern label punch.
