Today I have a card and video for you, demonstrating two ways to apply ink to embossed cardstock. These techniques feature products that most people will have in their craft supplies. Hopefully you will be able to try it out today.

First in the video I have used a technique with sponge daubers to dauber various ink colours onto the embossing. The video shows a couple of techniques which help get the shaded and relatively precise colour application. I have used the Layered Florals embossing folder in the January to April mini catalogue for my samples.

Secondly I show a technique using the Silicone Brayer from the mini catalogue, This is a super easy technique and you get a different effect depending on which colour cardstock and ink you use. In the image below, I have used (l-R) Craft White Ink on Crumb Cake, Bubble Bath ink on Basic White and Crumb Cake ink on Crumb cake. I have used different colours in the video to show more effects.

Here is card using one of these embossed pieces. This is the second of the ways to apply ink to embossed cardstock shown in the video. It started with the middle piece shown in the image below. The bundle used here is the brand NEW Magnolia Mood bundle. This will be available to customers in the Online Exclusives section of my online store from Tuesday 5th March. Next I used Bubble Bath and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to colour the image. Finally, I have also used the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder under the flower.
