I have been wanting to try this technique for some time using a brayer and ink with my embossing folders.  I love it.  Have you tried it?  So many possibilities and so much fun.
All I did was open the embossing folder, ink my brayer and run it over the one side of the folder, making sure it was all inked.  Carefully place cardstock on top of ink and close.  Run it through your 
die cutting machine and you will have beautiful colored embossing.

This is such a GORGEOUS creation Joan! I've done this technique by adding the ink directly from the ink pad but not with a brayer ... hmmm will have to give that try! Thanks for inspiration and I too am so glad to see YOU creating again! What fun!!
