Well I hope you ride along with me as I prepare to do a demonstration on ways to use embossing folders. I have been scouring the internet for ideas so here goes my first card using a technique where you emboss the card stock and then rub ink over it to make the raised design stand out by accenting the ink on the raised area. I chose to use a use the Tim Holtz round mini ink blending tool.I thought it worked the best easy to use in a circular motion. You just need a light touch and you can go over it more to lay more ink on the raise surface to make the color darker. I used Momento ink for my sample. I did use a sponge and it was O.K. but not as much control over the amount of ink that went in the areas that were not embossed.
Here are some pictures I took to help explain how I did this technique
