Wedding Card using ‘Faux’ Letterpress and Watercolor

IMG_5184I used a Lifestyle crafts emboss folder with letterpress ink to create the turquoise and white blocks. I need to keep experimenting with coverage but I think overall it looks great!

Experimenting with Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress

Things I’ve learned so far:

* Lifestyle crafts emboss folders can be used as “letterpress” plates.


* Taping the sides of the platform and the right amount of ink will create an amazing letterpress effect.IMG_4737

* The debossed and inked image will create a translucent finish and pool in strange ways when you don’t apply enough ink.
