(2018 c12) MFT Die Impress, Distress Oxide Ink


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI had so much fun following Jennifer McGuire’s Reverse Die Impression tutorial for this card.  Using  Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  I started by inking the back of  My Favorite Things Die-Namics  Mesmerizing Mandalas.   I used the Embossing Mat and placed the  inked flat side of the die down on white cardstock, on top I placed colored cardstock then the top pressure plate.  This debossed the white OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsheet and transfered color and also cut the top  purple cardstock as you can see on the picture on the right.For the fainter one I then placed the die on another white cardstock without re-inking and used the same cutting procedure and got a fainter colored impression and cut the green one.  (It  impressed into the paper and you have to keep the colored cardstock in the die and go back and place back on the cutting sandwich to actually cut through it.) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Next I painted the little white areas that didn’t receive ink with Dried Marigold Distress Ink.  I fussy cut a mask and placed over the mandalla  and sponged with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.  I stamped the sentiment with My Favorite Things Die-Namics  Mesmerizing Mandalas.
