Faux Letterpress

I'm sure you're all sick to death of me bleating on about my Cameo, so for this post I promise I won't mention it again.  So, for something completely different:

I thought I'd have a go at the Faux Letterpress tutorial by Beate here on the Splitcoaststampers blog.  What a great technique, I love it - it's so easy.  I don't get nearly enough use out of my embossing folders, so I will definitely be doing more of this.

Here's the card I made with it:

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Weathered Wood Distress Ink for the faux letterpress - I hope you can see the colours ok.  The Distress Ink has given a kind of dotty effect - I quite like it, but will try a different sort of ink next time for a more solid colour.

  I also used my new Spellbinders Fleur De Lis die and various other punches for the rest.  The sentiment is from Stamping Up and I used the same Distress Ink to stamp it.
