Late Night Stampers challenge 57

The challenge was to use any type of embossing and I choose to color emboss using the Finial Press Textured Impressions folder. This is my favorite technique to showcase the embossing folders. I rub the ink pad on the 'flat' side of the folder, insert my card stock and run the sandwich through my Big Shot. You can get a darker image if you shim your sandwich with an extra piece of cardstock, but I did a looser sandwich this time around - I like the fainter color that comes through.

Stamps: Picnic Parade

Paper: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, White

Ink: Black, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Going Grey, Sahara Sand, Cameo Coral

Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press Textured Impressions folder, brads, dimensionals, aquapainter, 5/8" Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, 1/4" Certainly Celery ribbon, ticket-corner punch
