This is for today's Technique Challenge where we were to use the negative side of the Cuttlebug.
Here’s what you do:
1. Take your CB folder and open it up so the negative side is facing down on your table. This is the side where the CB logo is.
2. Using whatever color ink, and whatever type of ink, ink up the negative side using either a sponge, brayer or the ink pad itself if you are using spots or the petal chalk inks.
3. Lay your cardstock over your inked side, close the folder and run it through your CB. Make sure to wash your folder ASAP, to avoid any staining from the ink. I have not had a problem with this, as long as I wash it right away!
4. Voila!! Now you have an inked and embossed image to add that extra touch to your card!!
I brayed Chocolate Chip on the my folder and used Pretty in Pink card stock.
The main image and sentiment are from my wonderful friend Billie(myboys)!! She stamped the image for me and sent me a package of clear stamps that had the sentiment in it. I colored it in with SU! Markers.
My sister loves and collects moose so I thought that this would be perfect to make and send to her.
Thank you Billie for being such a wonderful friend!!!
What do you think??
