A really cool way to add zing to the background on your cards is to stamp a design with clear ink and then emboss it with clear embossing powder. It will give a sophisticated look without the expense of owning an embossing system. These embossing systems can get very expensive when you consider the price of the machine plus each embossing plate. So get out those cool stamps that you already have and put them to use in a new way.
The beauty of using clear embossing is that it lets the color of the paper underneath show through, but yet the design adds so much with the subtle shine to the design. So try this next time you need a beautiful yet subtle look to your project.
