Faux Dry Embossing

Technique Challenge today on SCS is Faux Dry Embossing. This technique is quick and easy. To create your faux dry embossing look - first stamp your bold image in White Craft Ink and let that dry. Take the same image and using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp just to the right or left of the white stamped image with a darker color ink, creating a slight shadow. Then complete the card as desired.
Here is the card I created for today's challenge using this technique. I stamped Riding Hood Red image over the White Craft image slightly to the right. Isn't this just so clever. I love this!! I used the Scallop Edge Punch and the Paper Piercing tool to give some added touches to the finished card. Also, love the SU! New In Colors and the matching Kiwi Kiss Grosgrain Ribbon.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red
Ink: White Craft Ink, Riding Hood Red Classic Ink
Access: Kiwi Kiss Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensional Adhesive
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool & Mat, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
