Letter press technique..




One of our projects in last months Craft Club was the letter press technique...this is a technique where you ink the embossing folder before putting your card inside...it depends which side of the embossing folder you ink up as to effect you get...   on this card I wanted the flowers coloured.  

I've used one of the Wee pre-coloured image from the Silver Fairy collection, 
also used is the Sue Wilson Lattice heart embossing folder...just added a little bit of lace..a really quick and effective card.

Pretty image and the letterpress has worked really well - a great technique which seems to look different each time depending on which side of the folder is inked.
