Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink

Sparkly Faux Letterpress Birthday Card

I was inspired by THIS blog post by Jennifer McGuire to try inking an embossing folder before cranking it through my die cut machine.

My ink did not turn out as smooth as hers did – my brayer is old and not used much, maybe I need a new one. I was happy enough to make it into a card to be mailed off to a friend.

“Sparkly” is in the title because the blue paper is iridescent when you tilt it towards the light.

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Curious Metallics Blueprint, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, VersaMark, embossing folder – Darice, die – Lawn Fawn, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.
