Last Saturday found me at Emerald Crafts in Lyndhurst -
the heart of the New Forest and one of my favourite places to visit.
It was a busy day with lots of visitors - big thanks to those who came along.
Lyndhurst is such a lovely village...
complete with a rather nice pub too!
One of my chosen techniques to demo is inking the die.
This works well with solid dies - this one is Floral Heart Accent.
Place your die on a scrap piece of paper and pat liberally with an ink pad.
You can see it clings to all the raised areas.
Transfer it, ink side up, onto your base plate.
Cover with a piece of card, cut/emboss.
This is the result, really effective, the ink remains in the de-bossed areas.
A finished card using this technique.
Could not leave the New Forest without stopping off and seeing the ponies.
That rather dubious sky did lead to a lot of rain!
Take care friends, I'm back tomorrow with this month's Charity Kit.
