Cuttlebug Embossing with Ink

I saw this fun video tutorial (mentioned by my SBS sister, Kim) where a lady demonstrates a technique I'd never seen. She used a brayer to apply ink to the inside of a Cuttlebug embossing template, then put a piece of paper inside and ran it through the Cuttlebug. Below are 2 cards I made using the technique. Thanks for the inspiration, Kim!

I've just made an embossed, inked card like that but it's not as pretty as yours. I need a brayer. Put me down for a bookmark and email me your address honey xx
ps. you won my sister's blog-candy book :)

great, thanks for the link to the video, I've heard mention of that technique and wondered how it was done. Can't believe that I've missed so much lovely stuff on your blog.
