A Guy Greeting Masculine Card and Finger Pressed Technique

Today I thought I would try out the "Finger Pressed" Technique.  I have not used the brick wall embossing folder much, so I thought I would get it out and give it a try on that one.  Plus it has lots of flat and wider spaces to press!

I used Tip Top Taupe for my ink and the background cardstock layer.  I stamped the car from the "Guy Greetings" set using Soft Suede.  The layers are also Soft Suede.  And the base of the card is a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock. I set the car in place using Dimensionals.  For a finishing touch, I tied a little linen thread to the top of the card.  Something I don't normally do but today I thought I would!!

This is a fun technique and SO easy too.  All you do is take your brayer and ink up the smooth side of the embossing folder. Then you mist it 2 or 3 times. Add your cardstock and close the embossing folder.  Use your fingers to press the ink onto the paper.  You don't want the texture, just the ink.  See, I told you it was easy!

Have fun with it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
