Another Card Using Pods-Just for Fun

This card was made using a large pod and a small pod to color the raised areas of an embossed surface with 2 different inks by being selective in rubbing the CS.
1. Emboss CS with the EF of your choice. Used CB EF Bird in Hand because this design has 2 distinct areas that can be colored different hues.
2. Using a large pod inked with green, rub the surface of the "tree" area using a circular motion (don't forget to dab excess ink)
3. Using a small pod inked with red, color in the birds of the design.
Trim the edge of CS to fit card. Used the pod with green to edge this mat with green.
4. Cut and embossed a ribbon tag with Spellbinders. Stamped sentiment. Rubbed this with a green pod to bring out embossing.
Finished card as shown.

Bird is on a circle mat of white CS that was rubbed with green pod. Also colored bird with small pod with red ink since I had it handy and the color would match background.
Pods cannot be cleaned so it is neccesary to assign pod to a single color just as one might do with daubers or sponges. Since the price is $1 for a pack of 7, the price is right.
Thanks for dropping by!
