Tips On Colouring Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

A few people have asked how I manage to colour the raised embossed parts of a cuttlebug emossed folder without it going on the main part of the card so I thought I'd give you my tips.

I've tried doing it with a number of different inkpads (as I seem to collect those too lol) but I have found that the larger inkpads work much better than the smaller ones like the Brilliance dew drops... I prefer to use the Brilliance larger inkpads as for me they seem to work the best... especially the pearlescent ones as they shimmer.

If you keep the embossed image on your craft mat and keep your inkpad staight and just rub over the image keeping the inkpad straight and try not to be too heavy handed with it... you should end up with a result like this opposite!
