Coloured and Embossed topper tutorial

Hi folks and ty for your lovely comments re my coloured and embossed card toppers.

One of the things I really love about the world of craft is that folks are prepared to share.

In this spirit I am now posting some tutorial pics explaining how I created the toppers.

Stamp or choose a printed image
If stamping use and ink like momento
that won t be affected by the alcohol in the pens

Choose your alcohol pens and Distress ink

Choose an embossing folder

Colour the image with alcohol pens and
apply distress ink to the topper and spritz with water
there is no need to be fussy with the blending!

When dry run through the embossing folder

Rub with a gilding wax of your choice and
the topper is ready to go.

Here are some cards I made using this method -
