I thought I’d check out the challenges over at Stampin’ Addicts and found this one: Emboss Re-Lift. I remember reading about this technique but never did anything with it. This was the perfect … challenge! Please, you must do this and see how unusual the texture of your stamped panel is. It’s really neat, something like a parchment feel. And if you click the card image above to enlarge it, you’ll see the cool shadows around the edges of the trees. It reminds me of a woodcut image.
Great to get this set out again — I never tire of it (and that’s why my campers see it at least once every fall and winter).
