Default TLC665 ~ Crayon Rubbed Embossing ~ 11/20/17

Hello Technique Lovers!

First of all, thank you to everyone that played in the Pencil Monochrome Challenge! I loved seeing all of the different images and colors used. Definitely a technique I will be using again!

Today's technique is not "new" per se, but it has never been featured (as far as I could find) as a TLC. So today we are going to bring back some childhood memories for some of you with CRAYON RUBBED EMBOSSING.

Lydia has a wonderful tutorial HERE, that also has some variations.
Just keep in mind, that you aren't embossing with a machine - your finished panel will be smooth and flat. The results that you get will be a little more artsy and not as "clear and clean" as some may like. But I had fun doing this again - I haven't since I had young kids!
And ---- it took me four tries to get one that I liked. The most fun part, I think, is Lydia's Step 6, when you use a cloth to brighten the design. It just starts popping out!

I made two different samples using the same ink.
The first is with a Sizzix folder - and it's my more "artsy" card. The folder was a bird with a branch, and some plants.
The second is with a familiar Cuttlebug folder with the all over design.



Keyword: TLC665 (add this to your keywords so we can find your project!)
Have fun!
