Default TLC460~Clearly Dramatic Embossing {12-16-13}

Hello

The countdown is on for the holidays next week. For those that celebrate, are you ready? Are your cards all addressed and mailed out? Do you still have a few more to create?

Today's technique is a quick and easy one that hopefully you'll have some time to play along with at this busy time of year

Clearly Dramatic Embossing

I LOVE the look of clear embossing on dark cardstock! It's so dramatic, elegant or fun depending on what image you use.

For my sample today I clear embossing my image on black and added a pop of colour with red stickles on the berries.

Season's Greetings

Be sure to link up your card using the keyword TLC460

You can find the TLC460 Gallery here

Lovely challenge, Dawn. I did "jazz" it up with adding some acrylic paint over the embossing, but I love the base the embossing gave. Thanks.

I made this card and just realized that the emb on a dark color was supposed to be in clear. I used silver. Begging your pardon. For what it's worth, here it is:

I'm a little late to the party but since the card I just finished for the color challenge was embossing on black, I thought I'd link it. A spectacular New Year! by rheddhedd - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Have a spectacular New Year!
