Ink Up That Embossing Folder

 Hello friends!

This is my 2nd post for the day. Please check out this month's winner announcement HERE

Are you on board with Embossing Folders? I have a fun card to share on inking up the embossing folders.

 I am using Enchanting Vines 3D Embossing Folder as my example. Ever wonder how you create the de-bossed image with multiple colors?

Firstly, you will need water-based inks such as Distress Ink, Distress Oxide or Crisp Dye ink. These ink pads have flat and hard surface. You can be easily swipe up the ink to the surface of the embossing folder. This is nearly fool-proof, in my opinion.

ENABLER ALERT: I used a mini ink pad for this purpose. Please note that the Misty Morning is 50% Off! It is my favorite and I highly recommended!

I applied assorted ink from Misty Morning over the embossing folder. I then placed the paper carefully in between the embossing folder and ran it through my die cut machine.

I absolutely love how the background turned out. I decided to keep the rest of the elements simple: sentiment and a small image of the Tall Foliage.

I hope today's post is helpful with the use of Embossing Folders. Thank you for stopping by! 

BTW have you seen the new Ranger Distress Ink Color? it's Salvaged Patina. I know, they are look pretty close to the current colors, but if you look closely, it's different! I may not get it today, but will get it eventually .... 😀😁

Very pretty. It has been awhile since I have done this technique.

The multiple colors on the vines are lovely. A mini ink cube sure would make it easier to do as you suggested. Very pretty card. i will have to try the technique!
