So I was watching a video at Cricutology the other night and she was using a fiskars embossing plate and then some distress ink to ink the embossed parts, and it got me thinking to use my cuttlebug and sizzix folders to try the same technique. I ended up using my new favorite one, and I used some Cherry Pink Staz-on ink. It turned out amazing I think, I love how the ink is faded in some areas but darker in others. It is a sure way to create your own background paper when you want something that isn't quite as subtle as the regular embossing. To stick with the theme I punched my hearts out in white paper and inked them with the same ink. I love how simple and awesome this card turned out. Hope you enjoy.
