HERE. I used a different embossing folder for this weeks challenge and love the look of all those chevrons!
Just Add Ink this week. Head over there and check out the great samples the rest of the DT have come up with too.
I had some lovely comments left and quite a few emails asking if I would do a tutorial on the technique I have used here. Well you asked, so here it is (finally, lol):-
You will need:
Stampin' Up! classic inks, two or three colours and sponges.
Stampin' Up! embossing folder of choice.
Water filled spritzer bottle.
1. Sponge your choice of inks onto Whisper White or Very Vanilla card. It looks fairly ugly at this stage, but never fear!
3. Turn your embossing folder over, wet side toward your sponged card and gently lay the folder down. Press evenly over the entire surface to transfer the water to the sponged card.
4. Don't leave the folder on too long or you will loose the definition of the folder you are stamping. Gently lift the folder away. When you first reveal your wet artwork, it doesn't look very defined, but that happens as it dries.
The top photo was taken just after I lifted the folder, the bottom, after it was dry. Quite a difference! You can leave it to dry naturally, as I do, or speed the process up with a heat gun.
I hope you weren't too disappointed with how easy this technique actually was!! It packs a real punch with minimal effort - I love that!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you thought. I appreciate hearing from each and everyone that cares to leave a comment!
