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.
