• Letterpress papers will yield best results for this technique due their thickness and the high content of cotton within the paper.
• Use an embossing folder that has a fairly consistent raised pattern to avoid getting ink on unwanted areas of the design.
• Markers or colored pencils can be used to touch up areas that may not have been inked well enough.
• If you plan to stamp on the Letterpress paper, be sure to stamp first, then deboss.
