3. Apply Picked Raspberry, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks over the embossed sentiment using an ink-blending tool and foam pads. Remove any access ink from the embossed sentiment by buffing over the top with a dry paper towel. Ink the edges using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

Top tip

Make a large sentiment the focal point of a card by embossing it in white and adding bright inks on top. The words will really pop against the bold background. To make your background extra bright, apply multiple layers of ink, building up the color from light to bold and bright
