Not Just For Embossing!!

Good morning and thanks for stopping by.  Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, its Technique Tuesday and we are using our embossing folders to stamp with instead of emboss with.  I love that you can use items for many other purposes other than what they were intended for.  Makes me feel like I got a 2 for one sale!!!

I started with a base color of crisp cantaloupe then a layer of very vanilla.  I embossed that layer with the fancy fan embossing folder.  Then I used my scalloped tag punch and punched me out a tag that was 2" x 4".  I took my fancy fan folder, and on the raised side, used my crisp cantaloupe marker and colored on it.  I then took my spritzer with a little water in it, sprayed on the ink lightly with one spray.  I then layered my tag down on it and gave a light tap or two to transfer it over.  When you lift it up, you have a water colored stamp look.  After I allowed it to dry for a few minutes I used the Serene Silhouette stamp set and in blackberry bliss, stamped the flower image. 

On the inside, I used the opposite side of the folder and inked it with my ink pad and stamped in the corners.  I also used the splattered dots from Gorgeous Grunge to stamp the front of card and inside.

I absolutely love your card! I'm impressed with how you used both surfaces of the embossing folder as a stamp to get your beautiful design.
