Spooky Technique

It's time for another new technique.  It's called Crayon Rubbed Embossing.  Very interesting, but really cool results.  You HAVE to check out the coolest projects by the other DT members at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I'm totally in love with this look!!  My use of the technique is displayed in the background. 

Can you tell which embossing folder I used?  You can't?  Kinda spooky isn't it?!  :P  I used the stripes embossing folder....rubbed a white crayon on the cardstock while it was laying on the open embossing folder....then I ran the brayer over it after I inked it up with Lucky Limeade. 
Super cool technique for a Halloween card for sure!!  It would also look cool on a vintage card!
