Embossed Cards

In a previous post, I discussed making faux white core cardstocks. The above cards are another example of using gesso (or white paint) to achieve the same effect. The green panels were were embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then, the white gesso was lightly painted over the image. For the left card, I wiped the gesso off the raised portion of the image. For the card on the right, I dry brushed the gesso on the raised portion of the images.



All cardstocks and stamps are from Club Scrap.
