Cool Embossing Folder Techniques

These embossing folders with the words are killer...thats good where I come from...LOL...anyway...I just did a scrap piece to show ya the idea...I embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folder, then rubbed with Weathered wood distress ink better to build it up in layers of ink...than trying to press too hard to color it in one swipe...I just layed the ink pad flat onto the embossed area, and lightly rubbed across, repeating until it was as dark as I needed...Then you can cut the words and images apart for all sorts of layering and embellishing effects...The ones I used on my 6x6 snow scene layout the other day...I also sponged some Tea dye distress ink around the edges...just for added interest...
