Obviously, one of our goals here at Let's Squash It! is to help you s-t-r-e-t-c-h those embossing folders and what better way then to have some fun with debossing.
What do I mean by debossing?
If you're anything like me you probably discovered debossing the first time you accidently flipped your embossing folder before running it through your embossing machine!
Here's an example of how different embossing and debossing can look.
And take a look at this sweet little border edge folder - two great looks for the price of one!
Finally, I tried using a Christmas Tree folder and, again, I added some ink just to emphasise the difference:
To be honest, I love both looks. This just needs spraying with water and I'll have a lovely background with which to work.
You'll need to choose your folders carefully as numbers, letters and certain images don't necessarily work when debossed as they'll come out backwards. However, I think this gives yet another really cool, quirky effect!
I hope this brief post has got those creative cogs turning. Our new challenge is only a couple of days away and I wonder what it could be??? Hurry back to find out!
