ink embossing

For our last challenge it was anything goes, I went to my little container of unused items I have and this embossing folder was one I bought at the yard sale at my stamp store awhile back and I hadn't given it a try yet. I decided to break out my metallic rub ons, although this link isn't the colors I have this is what I used to ink the raised area's of my embossing folder. You can find it Here.

The color in my set was called Nubian and it was a cross between black and gray and I used a cream card stock for my base. When using this product I have always used my fingers to apply it but this time I decided to use a finger dauber and that worked much better I think.  I used a dark gray card stock for the base of the card. Added my sentiment and some pearls.

This card is a 5x7.

Anna Griffin, cuttlebug - Wildflower Gate embossing folder
Metallic Rub ons - Nubian color over raised areas of folder
Jillibean Soup - Enjoy stamp and die sentiment

This close up give you a better sense of what the colors actually are.

Thanks for stopping by,
 I hope you all enjoy a safe holiday weekend, and praying for the safety of all those in the path of the Hurricane.

Ink embossing is beautiful. I wish you loved closed I would give you my Fiskars Fuse!

Your make spectacular cards. The stenciled background turned out darling on the hot air balloons card. I am so fascinated with hot air ballons but would never go up in one!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
