Crafter's Companion Challenge - Embossing Folders

This month's Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog theme is  Embossing Folders.  I'm featuring the Embossing Folder - Multi Circles and an image from the Stamp-It Australia EZMount Stamp Set 68 - In The Wild

 I googled zebra heads for color inspiration and I found this lovely brown zebra.

I used Memento ink pads - the colors of rich cocoa and peanut brittle for the zebra. I laid the image face up and dabbed the colors onto the image, and then stamped onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I enhanced his colors with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

nose:  EB7 and EB8,
shading: BG2.
inside of his ears: GB2, GB5
eye: True Black  
I used a white gel pen to give it a tiny highlight

For the background layer, I used the same ink pads and applied color to the raised part of the Embossing Folder. I ran it through my ebosser and all the fabulous color was pressed into the design on Luxury Centura Pearl Printable Snow White Cardstock. NOTE:  I wiped the embossing folder off with a baby wipe to clean it.

The sentiment is from Stamp-It Australia EZMount Stamp Set Spring - Dreamy Daisies. I stamped it on the pearl card stock and edged with the rich cocoa ink pad. I adhered a small piece of the design layer inside.
