Inspired by an Alphabet Channel
Topic: Dry Embossing

I was flipping through the channels on the TV last month and stopped to watch Anna Griffin on one of the '24-hour-we-can-sell-you-anything' channels. She was showing some new Cuttlebug folders she had designed. I didn' want any of them but watched just to see what new techniques she was using.

Only one thing really caught my eye and that was her use of a gold paint pen traced over the raised embossing.

Well, I HAD to try that!

I pulled out some glossy cardstock with a color-changing blue/purple/green finish. It reminds me of the look of oil on water.

I ran this through the Cuttlebug with a folder from the 'friends' set and then used a gold Krylon paint pen to trace over all the dandelions. I put it back through the Cuttlebug with a text border folder and then used the gold paint pen on the words and the swirl.

A piece of shiny gold cardstock was embossed with the 'heart blocks' folder and I cut a strip of that to apply under the text.


I trimmed the embossed panel right next to the raised border and mounted on purple for framing.

I do like this style and may try it again.
