Ok so I have several embossing folders and borders for the Cuttlebug and yes the dry embossing looks nice, but what can I do to add a splash of color? I tried using a inking block, but it leaves a little streaking..is there a way to do this technique without the streaking or is there markers I can use? Thanks in advance.....

This is not ink, but you could use Coredinations cardstock that has a colored core. Dry emboss it, than lightly sand the raised areas to reveal the core colors.

You can ink directly on the the embossing folder, it gives it a cool look(:

what kind of ink are you using? I do this all the time with no problems - I usually use Cat's eyes ink pads or other inks that have a raised, plush pad. You can also use a sponge or cloth to transfer the ink instead of the pad itself.

@Here Kitty, I used the Studio g inks that has the raised pad. The streaking wasn't that bad...maybe I swiped instead of blotted? Thanks for sharing you cards!

I will also try the core paper and adding the ink right to the folders as suggested...thanks again!

you can also add ink and a lil water to the embossing before you embossing the paper that leaves a cool effect.
