I could not (emboss) resist combining LeAnne’s color challenge at The Paper Players # 162 this week and Jen B.’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches # 103. I have not done this technique for many, many years and forgot what a great effect it has on a card. It is hard to believe the black panel was once white! I sponged on SU Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry in a random pattern covering my Whisper White cardstock, stamped the flowers in Versamark Watermark ink, and clear embossed them. I then sponged black ink over the panel turning the colorful background black and allowing the colors to show through only on the clear embossed flowers. I also liked how the black sentiment stood out on the Rich Razzleberry. And, yum…I love those Candy Dots.
