Brayer/Embossing Magic!

A customer showed me a great embossed card and I had to figure out how it was done. (Thanks, Karen!) The color was on the debossed part of the card instead of the raised image. So this is how you do it. You brayer color onto the embossing folder before you place your cardstock in the folder. When you put the paper in the folder and emboss it, the color is transferred to the background leaving the raised area without ink.
This first card was a simple card made for the CAS challenge at The challenge was to use Blissful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery on a clean and simple card. I brayered the Bashful Blue on the embossing folder, painted the embosssed flowers and swirls with Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie, and stamped the sentiment from Occasional Quotes in Pumpkin Pie. (I added glitter to the flower centers.) This card probably took me less than 10 minutes to make! No layers, just Whisper White cardstock and ink. So simple!

Here's a wedding card I made for a friend this weekend that takes the first card up a couple of notches. I brayered the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder (#115964) with Perfect Plum ink (#101437), then painted the center of the flowers with Baja Breeze ink (#111833) and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter (#102023) . This was layered on Perfect Plum cardstock (#101889) and a Baja Breeze card base (#111352).
This gorgeous Satin Organza White Ribbon (#114319) is perfect for any occasion! The Rose Red (#102544) and Whisper White (#100730) tags were die cut with the Lots of Tags Sizzlits (#114508). The sentiment from Occasional Quotes was stamped with white craft ink (#101731) and embossed in white (#109132), then layered over the ribbon with dimensionals (#104430).
Rose Red pattern paper was cut to cover the flap of the envelope for a matching set. This great color combo came from the new Color Coach (#121620), which I love!!

I want to see how you do this in person before I attempt it! Seems like a great workshop to me! I think these embossed flowers are so beautiful and of course, you took advantage of that and enlarged on it so nicely!
