I saw this cool background technique in this month's Creating Keepsakes. Lightly stamp onto the raised parts of the embossed paper with a background stamp! I had to try this! I embossed my paper with various images from the Bodacious brass template. Then I inked up my Friend Definition and ever so gently stamped it. It really doesn't need a lot of pressure, you don't want to stamp beyond those raised images!

This is darling Natasha! You can also stamp on the backside of your embossing, so that the background goes everywhere but your embossing- I think it is called de-bossing! Anyway...this is darling! YOu did a great job!
