Monthly Technique Challenge: EMBOSSED EMBOSSING

Hello and welcome to our monthly technique challenge! This challenge runs from January 15th to February 14th and the theme is...
What is embossed embossing you ask? It's a dry embossed cardstock (from an embossing folder) that is brayered with embossing ink over the raised design and heat embossed with an embossing powder. You will want to use an anti-static pouch on the paper before brayering and heat embossing. If you do not have a brayer, you can use the "face" of a sponge (not the sides) to lightly apply embossing ink to the raised design. Click here for a Splitcoast tutorial for this technique.
