All of my experimenting was done on plain white cardstock.When inking the embossing folders I used dye ink, which easily rinses out with water. Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, make-up sponge, and a Versa Magic re-inker.Instead of inking the embossing folder, I used my brayer and went over the cardstock after it was embossed.To hit the raised pattern and the background, you really have to push down. When you are done, your cardstock will look like this. Because the paper was already embossed your brayer will not touch all of the background leaving those white lines around the detail, which I think is a really neat effect. The result is definitely much darker since you are repeatedly going over the paper.Farming's a breeze when your animals have learned to assemble themselves by species!Here the farm animals graciously abide by the unwritten farmyard apartheid, with pigs clustering with pigs, chickens keeping company with chickens and sheep looking nervous in the middle of the pack.The grocer, most likely named "the grocer" or "Food Delivery Technician # 4" looks like your doctor, or at least a Good Humor man.
As we culturally deconstruct the dreadfully misguided marketing effort of purity culture, it’s important to recognize that isn’t the truth of Christianity.
One nice thing about this method is that there is a little less clean-up, since you don't ink the embossing folder.
Plus, you don't have to worry about staining your folder if that is a possible concern. The important thing though, is that I had a lot of fun playing and even if it isn't exact, I have 3 new ways to make interesting and beautiful backgrounds! If you do, let me know, I would love to see your creations!
