Bisque Pottery

This is an easy technique that does not require a lot of supplies or skill.

You will need a Big Shot and embossing folder and an ink pad a d a piece of cardstock pre cut to desired size. A brayer is not necessary but can help.

Ink up the inside bottom (smooth side) of your embossing folder. You can use a brayer to apply ink or direct pad to folder method. Place cardstock in folder and run through Big Shot. Open folder right away to keep from paper bumping and shifting in folder and creating a shadow look. It is a nice look but not what we were trying to achieve here. Ink should be dry right away but make sure before placing paper on your project.

The best looks with this technique are achieved with colors close to each other or the same on the color wheel. Such as here I used very vanilla and Sahara sand. Call it complimentary colors.

Send me a pic of your project with this technique and I will post it.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping, Sandy
