I made two cards from the second technique on day 5. There are actually two different lessons taught for this.
First, the stamp is impressed on chipboard and cut out with a 1/8 inch border. this is glued to another chipboard and cut out again. When run through the Cuttlebug with a rubber mat underneath the chipboard creates a debossed shape on the white heavy cardstock (the lesson used watercolor paper but mine kept tearing).
Second lesson is the inking. The stamp is inked with Distress and stamped into the debossed area. when the ink is dry an aquabrush is used to blend the colors on the image.
For my first card I used a pear image in scrollwork. I inked it in three tones of yellows and greens. This was mounted on printed green background using thick glue dots. I stamped a sentiment in gold pigment ink and embossed in clear. Then I used a Distress marker to shadow the letters and a gold gel pen to border the panel.
For the second card I used an oak leaf stamp and four Distress Inks in greens and golds. After blending the colors with the aquabrush and drying them I used my finger to pat on some gold pigment ink over the leaf. I used the gold gel pen to border the panel on which I had rounded the corners. I adhered a white diecut word and shadowed the letters with a Distress Marker.
Interesting concept but I can't see myself using it much (the debossing). The coloring is something I might actually use.
