Default WT351 - Friend of Faux? (12/1/11)

As we bring in December, the fine weather we are having here in Chicagoland have caught brought poor Collette down. So Michelle here to post her challenge for her.
Today, Collette is challenging you to ink up that embossing folder to try the Faux Letterpress technique.
I could have sworn there was a tutorial on this in the resources section, but I couldn't find it, so this video by GinaK will have to do for ya - Inking a Cuttlebug Folder - stampTV

Remember to use WT351 when uploading your cards.
You can see all the cards in this superb gallery HERE.
Here are two samples to get you started by Hannah and me.

There was a TLC way back in early 2008 for the Cuttlebug Negative effect, which might be why you thought there was a tutorial in Resources , as it's so similar. If I'm sure I've learnt a technique here and it's not in Resources I check out the TLC thread for my next stop.
Looking forward to this after I enjoy a lie-in!

Thanks Michelle and Collette for the fun challenge today. I really don't use this technique as much as I should since it gives spectacular results.

I love using this technique, but I have such a hard time getting my embossing folders clean afterwards

Here's mine:

I did faux letterpress by inking on my Simply Scored tool and using that to get a striped pattern!

I'm feeling time-challenged right now, so I took a page from Neva's book. Here is my Last Minute Sleigh Ride.
