We had a lovely afternoon crafting and playing with the beautiful new Big Shot dies and embossing folders that were released in our new mini catalogue.
You can apply the ink to the folder with a brayer and this gives a softer effect. Using the ink pad straight on the folder gives a much stronger colour and you can even add a little texture if you deliberately leave strokes in the ink. Be careful not to be too heavy handed though otherwise the ink will get in the grooves and spoil the effect.
Our next crafting afternoon will be on the 14th May - if you'd like to come please email me for details.
