Today i have a simple design with an impressive technique.
Faux letterpress is wow! Simply, use a piece of a good quality white card stock, and run it through your die-cutting machine, but before, run an ink pad on the female (flat side of the embossing folder). Here I used Soft Pool shadow ink from Hero Arts, and I stamped (the inside of the folder) with Soft Granite shadow ink from Hero Arts the Envelope Liner background. Then I run it through and voila! A simple technique to use with embossing folders.
Hero Arts inks are great because they start splotchy but as they dry, they even and smoothen out!
