One of the girls in my stamping group challenged us to inking our embossing folders by swiping our inks across the folder and using a few different colors, Here is a video she shared with us.
I used 3 different colors of Distress ink in the cube size across the embossing folder on each of my cards, I wrote all the colors of ink I used on a piece of paper, well I set everything aside because the next day I needed to make some other cards and when I went back to working on these I had lost the paper I wrote all the colors I used, how does this stuff just get up and walk out of the room, I am sure I will come across it someday and wonder what all that meant.
I took a closer picture, wasn't sure if you could see the different colors that were used very well in the over all picture of the card. I cut the branch so that it would fit better on the card.
Crafters companion-- woodland embossing folder
Recolletcions -- owl stamp
Memory Box -- Woodland branch die
Making memories -- woven labels
Here is my second card, I think you can see the colors a little better on this one. The stamp is one I had just bought at my stamp stores recent garage sale, people were getting rid of spring stamps so you will be seeing a few of them. I accidently stamped it in blue, then I stamped it again in black and even using my MISTI, I must have moved it a little bit, I tried to find markers that would kind of match the colors of the ink I used for the background.

Awww the day warmed up and the sun is shinning, spring may be on it's way once again :) Hope it stays this time.
Wishing you all a wonderful remainder of the weekend!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
