Hi! Jen Matott here for a fun Technique Tuesday. I have a Cuttlebug from Provocraft and LOTS of texture embossing folders. I love the look of added textures to papers just by adding designs that pop out. I thought it might be fun to add a bit of color to the textures. Gelatos are the perfect media to add to the embossing folders.
If you have a Cuttlebug or any of the press die cutters, this will work. If you don't, you can still try it out using a rolling pin over a texture plate.
The colors are intense and distressed! I love the look!
The Gelatos are easy to clean off the plate but before I do that, I took a "ghost" image by running it through with a couple more pieces of paper. Each time it was lighter but still cool!
Here's my journal page that I used the color embossed paper on. I added color to the collaged background with Gelatos and my colored glazes that I shared a few posts ago. I colored gel medium with Gelatos to create a translucent color.
