Clear Embossing Effect

I've tried this technique while I'm doing my recent tag and card. The clear embossing will make your image looks dimensional and glossy. It would create the effect that a glossy accent would. And the best part is that it is resistant of any water based ink such as distress ink.

In the first image above, I've first inked a piece of card stock using some distress inks. Later, I've stamped and heat embossed the flourish using some clear embossing powder. Then, I've cut it out and inked the edges before adding it to my card. The clear embossing here gives a little dimension and glossiness to the card.

In the second image, I've first stamped and heat embossed the flourish with clear embossing powder on a white card stock. The embossing here would act as a resistant to any distress ink that I will be adding on it later. I've used a mixture of distress inks to ink all over the tag.

This is such a fun technique to use. Try it!
