Technique Tuesday - Embossing folder colouring

Colouring Embossing Technique

Cut a square of white card (11.5cm x 11.5cm)

 Place in embossing folder (I have used Couture Creations C0723153)and run through your die cutting machine

Take a light green Promarker (I have use Meadow Green) and colour the leaves

Using a light pink Promarker (I have used Blossom) and colour the ‘flowers.

And the finished peice will look like this

Take  peice of co-ordinating paper/card (I have used Docrafts Vintage Notes) and cut 12.5cm x12.5cm
 Cut a strip or the co-ordinating paper 1.5cm x 12.cm and stick to the lower section of your embossed design
Using an off cut of the white card from the beginning, use a decrotive oval/circle die and cut a semi circle (I have used the smallest die in the Spellbinder Grand Nestabilities Decorative Ovals set. Then adhere the right end of the strip
 Use foam pads to add a sentiment of your choice, the decorate as desired.
 When decorated, stick to a 6x6 card, using foam pads

And here is the card I made with mine :)
