No One Like You!

Gina K regularly has some of the most beautiful and DO-able techniques in town. Head for her site here and sign up for her weekly posts.  Her videos are short, extremely clear, and well worth your time.

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.
