This is another technique we did at a recent embossing folder class I held. In these two samples, I simply ran my cardstock through the embossing folder and then highlighted the impression by going over it with an inked dauber.
For this one, I used the Woodgrain Embossing folder and highlighted the tree impressions with Chcolate Chip ink. The owl (one of my favorites) is the Owl Builder Punch.
For this one, I used the brand new Brick Wall Embossing folder. The paper is Cajun Craze (nicely resembles bricks). I dabbed some Chocolate Chip ink around where the cement would be on a brick wall. The flowers were stamped using Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets and then punched out with the Pansy and Petite Petals punches.
Adding a bit of ink to an embossed image add another layer of depth and dimension. Give it a try!
