So today I decided to finally play around with my new GC Machine.
I have seen various tutorials on YouTube for Embossing Folders and Inks i.e Here and This one, Looks pretty easy right ? ! Wrong …was nothing but a major failure. I followed what they said and 2 hours later I admitted defeat with this.
I had tried with Distress Inks and Memento Dew Drops, I inked raised side and not so raised side…Failure each time. I noticed in one of the videos she just used A plate & Raspberry plate do we not need Tan Embossing mat also ????
So many videos using this technique some with tan embossing mat others not… all very confusing…
So I am asking for a BIG HELP here…. for anyone who has a Grand Calibur and has had successful results with embossing folders and inking, please could you let me know exactly what you did please ? Tanning mat or not ?? What technique worked best ….
Please excuse the awful colours I just grabbed first 2 colours at hand, plus I only have 2 embossing folders at moment ( rest are on way )
