How to Do Reverse Embossing with a Twist

Today I'll show you How to Do Reverse Embossing with a Twist! If you were checking out the post on Monday we were learning how to do Reverse Embossing...stamping the image on white cardstock and sprinkling with clear embossing powder then heating that up! You could see the white image below the sponging of bright colors on top. If you missed it you can see it here

Today we're going to create a 2-toned background by using a Soft Seafoam cardstock, embossing the image with clear embossing powder and then sponging the layer with Shaded Spruce--a beautiful dark green...then instead of white you'll see the soft lighter green where we stamped with Versamark and used the clear embossing powder on top...using this technique you create a beautiful 2-tone green background for your card design.
