Velum Part 2

Last time we talked about coloring on the back of an embossed image on Velum card stock to achieve a subtle look. Today I have two cards that I have embossed the Velum. One card I colored on the back of the image with a Sponge Dauber the other card I colored on the front of the embossed image with a Sponge Dauber. See if you can tell which card is colored on the front of the embossed image.

I have both cards in front of me and if I didn't know which one I colored on the front I couldn't tell by looking. The card on the right is the one I colored on the front of the card.  The difference is very slight. With just a small amount of ink showing on the raised areas.

I really liked applying the ink with a Sponge Dauber because I had more control where the color was applied. To color on the edges or smaller areas, I inked the sponge on the side and carefully applied the ink to the image. The process goes quickly and if you had a large amount of cards to make I would suggest this card would be a good pick.
