Cuttlebug Self Embossing Technique

1.Black SALT cardstock and Brialliance Pearlescent Purple Ink-any metallic ink or paint looks great on a dark cardstock. 2.SALT Black cardstock embossed with no added colour medium.

3.Wendy Irving Patterned paper from her Christmas range, Vintage Brown Versafine ink.The stars are embossed upwards.

4.The same products as before but the stars are reversed,indented.

5. Same as above but Basic Grey Dasher paper and Olympia Green Versafine Ink.

6. Same patterned paper as previous but Kaisercraft Olive paint dry brushed over the entire piece.

7.This is the embossing plate I made from a Weet Bix carton and chipboard stars.I glued the pre-bought SALT chipboard stars onto the cardboard with Gel Medium.This is the size of the A plate.
This technique has been inspired by Mel from Mel Stampz.You have to visit her blog and check out the awesome embossing folders she has made.
Depending on which way you want the embossing depends on which way you face the patterned paper.
Plate A, PlateB, Hand made embossing plate,paper/cardstock, silicone mat, Plate B.
When the patterned paper is facing upwards the embossing is raised on the patterned part of the paper.
When the patterned paper is facing downwards the embossing is indented on the patterned part of the paper.
HINTS-other mediums
2.Embossing Ink and powders
3.Metallic Cardstock
4.Metallic card or patterned paper with a white back and then sanded
5.Coredinations Cardstock
6.You are limited by your imagination.

WOAH! That looks SO cool with the stars & all the inked variations are amazing! I'm so glad it worked for you. People are having mixed results; I think a lot depends on the cardboard. Wish I was more of a sandwich expert like you. I'm in awe of the variation of things you do! :O)
