Club Scrap Artist Team October technique challenge: embossing folder

Here is my contribution to the
The challange is to work with an embossing folder.
Pam has a lot of variations on the Club Scrap Blog
and be sure to visit all her wonderful samples.

I will show you today, that you can also use 
clear acetate with an embossing folder.

Usually I keep wrappings from my craft materials
and use these for projects. I cut one of the pieces to the size
of an embossing folder. I used a script folder, to go with the
new October Literature kit. As my box has not yet arrived 
I make good use of the digital kit.

This is how it looks after I ran it through my 
embossing machine.

Now take some white acrylic paint and color
the acetate sheet on the backside.

With some paper towel (still on the roll for easy
working) and take away the extra paint on the non
embossed parts of the acetate.

You will see the lettering is more bold than before.

I fastened the acetate with brads to the printed red
background paper. The sentiment is printed on
kraft paper and matted on white.

This girl is a stamp from 2011 A Girl's night Out.
Stamped on shrink foil and colored with markers.
You can also use colored acrylic paint
on the backside. lots of fun experimenting!

I used it to make this carf for the
October sketch challenge on the Club Scrap
forum online.

This time i fastened the acetate with glossy accent
to the printed background paper. It is best to have
it drie first underneath something heave, so it stays straight
before you finish your card.

Hope you get some ideas about using your
embossing folder and will make a card to so
you can link it to the
and maybe win some goodies.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Oh Hetty this is a fabulous technique - I had never thought to use acrylic paint behind embossed acrylic - what a difference it makes to the finished article.
Your cards are stunning, and I can so relate to those sentiments

I love the look of embossed acrylic, both with and without the addition of paint. The script embossing folder looks fabulous done this way. But oh my, it was the sentiment about being born with a reading list that made me smile - I just LOVE that. So true for me, I need to take fewer books out from the libary and then I might actually get through them all before it's time to return them. You little girl looks sweet too!
