Textured Embossing with Gesso

Today I am going to show you how to make the embossed papers I used for my foliage in my "Gift From God" layout as shown below:

Supplies Needed:
Good quality cardstock (heavy)
Alcohol inks and felt applicator
Embossing folder (I used Tim Holtz)
Embossing machine (I used the Cuttlebug)
Rub n' Buff or other metallic ink

Let's go!

You can now use your papers however you wish! They can be mats or die cut into leaves like mine, flowers, anything your creative minds can think of! Have fun with it and I can't wait see what you create!

The ScrapThat! August Kit is now available in our store.
