You can do so many things when embossing. I love to emboss different media-foil, foam, chip board, etc. Here are a few of the fun projects I’ve done.
Using white embossing powder as a resist is a great way to give “pop” to your background.
Resist with white embossing powder, ombre overlay, embossed nativity. Hint: if you sprinkle a little white embossing powder and heat from the back, it will look like a light snow fall.
Dry emboss, ink with a brayer, distress and then apply glossy accents.
You can dry emboss each layer in a different pattern. Try to keep the overall look simple so it is still pleasing.
You can also dry emboss patterned paper to give it another dimension.
