Now, on with the fun. The theme for our hop today is "Favourite Techniques" and this is currently one of mine.....
.....using embossing folders as background stamps.
You will need.....
.....an embossing folder, a brayer, an ink pad and some card stock.
Get your brayer nice and inky.....
.....and apply to the raised part of the pattern you'd like to print.
Lay the card stock on the inked surface.....
.....close the folder.....
.....and apply pressure by firmly rubbing the whole area.
Open the folder.....
.....and remove your card stock.
Cut to size.....
.....and add to your project.
Your next stop is Crafty Little Bling. Head on over to see Sam's favourite technique.
