Dry Embossing With Watercolor Crayons

Hello!  This technique is featured on the Technique Tuesday Blog today!

The Stamping Techs at Technique Tuesday are busy sharing all kinds of different techniques with you during the month of September (and into October!).  I am excited to share a project with you today!

The technique that I am doing is using the Technique Tuesday Watercolor Crayons on your embossing folder.

Step 1:  Color on the inside front of your embossing folder:

Step 2:  Spray with water:

After spraying, your folder with be pretty wet!

Step 3:  Run cardstock through your Big Shot, Cuttlebug, etc and allow paper to dry thoroughly:
