Stampin' Up! Apothecary Accents dies Everything Eleanor

A few months ago in one of my stamping classes, we tried a fun technique with our embossing folders.  Before I explain the process to you, let me show you a card I made yesterday using a sample of the technique. It also includes a new die cut shape (one of 4 in Apothecary Accents) and images from Everything Eleanor, both available in our  2012-12013 Catalog.

The technique layer is the white painted layer. To get this look:
  1. Apply a thin layer of craft paint to a piece of card stock. Stampin' Up! card stock is heavy-weight and can handle the paint without buckling.
  2. Once the paint dries, run the card stock through the Big Shot enclosed in a embossing folder of your choice. Flower Garden was used here.
  3. Remove the card stock from the folder and use a Sanding Block to lightly rub the raised design. This will remove the thin layer of dried paint and allow the original card stock color to show through.
  4. Optional: Lightly ink up a Brayer and lightly roll it over portions of the card stock for additional color. Always Artichoke was added here.

In case you were wondering :)
