Create Dry Embossed Backgrounds with Kris
This is Kris, and I am excited to share a project with you today!
I am going to show you how to use Technique Tuesday's watercolor crayons with an embossing folder to create a neat background.
Start by coloring one side of the inside of an embossing folder with a Technique Tuesday watercolor crayon.
Spray it with water.
Your folder should get pretty wet.
Place a piece of cardstock in your folder. Run it through a diecutting machine. Remove the paper from the folder and allow it to dry thoroughly.
I used my background to make this card.
The snowman and sentiment is from one of Technique Tuesday's new Printables, which Technique Tuesday sells at conventions and will have on their Web site soon.

This is lovely. I never would have colored my folder, but it creates a nice effect.
