Technique Tuesday ~ Steampunk Card

Steampunk Card
By Judy Cantrell
This card was made with designer paper I had for 7 years; until now I didn't know what to do with it. 
[look at the bottom of this tutorial how this card front started]

 Supplies Part 1 and 2:
Designer paper 4 ¼ x 5 ½’ (Aurum)
Adirondack Dabber Paint (Ranger)

Tim Holtz Alterationsembossing folder (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz Vagabond tool(Sizzix)

Embossed and painted designer paper

1. Paint the embossed design on front of alterations embossing folder with espresso paint.
2. Apply the trimmed designer paper in the folder and then run the embossing folder through your tool.
3. Following the design of the paper rub snow dabber paint over the raised design.
4. This technique left a muted design that is perfect for a grungy look I wanted.
Note: clean the embossing folder with soap and water as soon as you remove the designer paper.
