Embossing tutorial #2--craft ink and clear EP

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am posting a set of tutorials to provide people (and myself:)) with a place to quickly refrence which of Stampin' Up!s great products to use when. We are on tutorial #2, which is using craft ink and clear ep to emboss. This technique or method is one of my favorites because with one container of clear ep you can emboss in any of SUs great colors through the use of craft ink. I highly recommend to anyone who loves this method as much as me to get a box of the craft ink spots. Then you instantly can emboss in the 12 colors of your favorite color family!!

I chose to use this large flower image from One of a kind for this technique. I inked it in close to cocoa CRAFT ink and then stamped on soft sky card stock.----------------->
I then covered the image with clear EP.
<----------------------
And followed the same steps as the versmark and EP technique to get my final image.
<--------------------



I love this technique for coloring in images as well. The embossed edge creates a barrier so you have to color within the lines!!! (If only I knew about this when I was in kindergarten!!)


Here is a picture of a card I made using this embossed image. --->
Check back for the next tutorial on using iridescent ice EP and dazzling diamonds glitter.
Thanks for stoppin' by!

Great tutorial, Erin!
I love using craft ink even when I'm not embossing. I think you get a deep bold color.
Love your card too!

These are great tutorials Erin! I still don't know how to use all the different EPs we sell. This was great! I never think to emboss with craft ink.

Love that card! It's so beautiful. :)
