embossing folder idea

you may have tried this already but if you haven't then give it a go - I taped a sheet of thin card to the raised side of the embossing plate and with a crayola crayon I pressed down firmly and rubbed over the whole area - it's a bit like brass etching .

I did this one with a grey crayon and then added a little water colours in pink and green - I will go back and finish the colouring and then use it as a background paper . 

A much more delicate effect when done with a pink crayon on a linen look card .

Nope, not tried this technique yet. Thanks for sharing and I have added it to the to do list. :-)
