Cardmaking

Stamping with embossing folders

Happy hump day crafty people!  I hope you are having a wonderful week.  A few weeks ago I made some cards using embossing folders to stamp.   I couldn’t resist adding in another project on this theme as I really liked the effect.

This time I pulled out a mandala type embossing folder and I used black archival ink.  When I tried stamping it by hand I didn’t get a good effect at all so I ran it through the big shot to get a better impression as well as embossed.

Once the ink had dried I used a water brush and some distress oxide inks to paint the mandala and than added a stamped sentiment in the centre.  I thought the finished effect was a bit like a tile.
