At this month’s Heartfelt Inkspiration group meeting, we were pondering the technique on a tag I got in a swap. Did she brayer the embossing folder with craft ink and then emboss the panel? Which side of the folder got the ink? Or was the panel brayered after it was embossed? We experimented with the first two variations, and this morning I tried the third. That was it. And I know there’s a tutorial or challenge out there for this technique (and a name!), but I don’t know where or what it is. (Do you?)
I decided to use the panels I produced to create some quick thank you cards. No embellishments, just a little piercing to add interest.
