The Virtue of Embossing

Hello friends!
Do you love Embossing? If you do, come on in!

 Just Because 
(shop Altenew here, shop Simon Says Stamp here)

This stamp set is gor-ge-ous ....
it involves some coloring if you want to go for that.

I decided to explore the intricate stamp and do white-embossing.
Just Because

You can use any kind of white embossing powder,
preferably the fine and detailed ones, such as this or this.

After the initial embossing, the grey card stock looks a bit faint against the white embossing.
I then took the darker shades of Warm Gray Oval Ink Pad(shop Altenew here,  Simon Says Stamp here) and applied ink to all the corners. I love what I saw as the contrast is more prominent and defined.

Do you like the colorful sentiment? All inks are from Altenew (see here).
The white splatter? White Pico Embellisher.
I am quite pleased how this card turned out. I love this sentiment as it serves all kinds of occasions.
I hope that you like it, too.

Elegant and, since I love grey, right up my alley. I could see this as an multi-card set in different colors or, even better, just as it is. Beautiful.

That is a lovely stamp set, and a nice effect with white embossing! Beautiful card!
