Lately, as I've been commenting on other crafter's blogs I've noticed that a few stampers have been stamping and embossing their images in white or clear and I was immediately smitten with the look. This card is my attempt at it. After stamping the image with Versamark, a white embossing powder was applied and heat set. The image was colored with Distress Inks. I absolutely love this technique!

The following products used on this card can be found at the Loves Rubberstamps online store: 

Die-Namics Friend Die
Tsukineko Versamark
Tim Holtz Distress Ink:
 Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Pumice Stone, Spun Sugar, Tea Dye, Victorian Velvet
