'Boo' Banner with Brayered Embossing
Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Suzanna Lee Cycle 12
Hi there Craftwell fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a cool technique I used to create this Halloween "Boo" banner!
The middle three pennants of the banner are all embossed cardstock. The middle banner piece, for the first letter O, I did something a little bit different. I debossed the cardstock with an embossing folder that I brayered gesso over so that the white web is visible on the black cardstock!
Here's how it's done;
Prepare your brayer with gesso
Roll the gesso'd brayer over the raised part of the embossing folder.
Carefully place your cardstock on top and without shifting the paper, close the folder.
Insert into appropriate sandwich for the Cut'N Boss and run through the machine to deboss the cardstock.
Allow the gesso to dry before decorating.
I precut the pennant pieces (with a die in my Cut'N Boss) before running them through the Cut'N Boss to emboss! That's a mouth full of a sentence! Here is the sandwich I used for the die cutting;
Here is another close up of the layers for the letters. A little gauze, some stamping, some punching!
Thanks for stopping in today!
