This simple card works with any non-outline image which is mostly solid – or even completely solid. After stamping the text on ivory cardstock with Vivid Taupe, stamp the image in Clear ink and then Clear emboss. Ink up a dauber with whatever color you are using and starting in the center on top of the Clear embossing, swirl out towards the edges without re-inking in order to have darker color in the middle and lighter toward the edges. Re-ink as necessary, always starting in the middle and swirling out. Wipe off excess ink with a paper towel and then ink the edges with a darker color for a finished look.
