This week's challenge in the Crafty Secrets member forum over at Splitcoast Stampers is to use some of the new stuff we got for Christmas. The Jamara embossing folder and Tumbled Glass ink were both under the tree for me this year. And although it's not newly acquired, I've never used this particular shape label die from the set so I guess I could count that as new, too!
I combined my two new items by inking the negative of the folder here to get colour in the low bits and leave the raised bits white. I find it works best if you brayer the ink onto the folder (less splotchy than if you tap the pad directly onto the plastic).

We watched the Chanel biopic Coco Before Chanel on DVD last night - maybe that's why Parisian chic came to mind today (not that she'd have approved of the corset, of course!).
Thanks for stopping by!
