Stamp image with embossing ink or Versamark on white card stock, cover with white embossing powder and heat set.
Use a stencil brush to stipple on a neutral color of ink over and around the edges of the stamped image.
Use a paper towel or a soft cloth to wipe ink off of the embossed image. Love the look of this!
Turned it into a sample ATC. Stamped flourishes with the same bamboo ink on the background (wiped ink off the embossed image with a paper towel). Stamped a saying and colored the edges with black Archival ink. Added a vintage image, a heart in a box charm and a heart brad over a cut flower bit to look like a butterfly.
