Embossing is not only easy but it can be an inexpensive tool as well. For example for wet embossing we are talking about a heat gun, a watermark ink pad and embossing powder. Now dry embossing means a machine and buying embossing folders but those can be relatively cheap and there are a ton of machines at many price points.
Either way, the details are incredible!
Here are some examples..
I love this example of embossing pattern paper. Like the stripe behind the die cut.
Here is another example with embossed pattern paper. The swirls are subtle but are brought out more by the inking. Edged in Stickles, it's gorgeous in person!
White on white wet embossing adds a neat effect by adding a shining pattern but very subtly.
A watermark stamp provides the pattern but something tone on tone. Embossed with a clear embossing powder.
Again stamping with clear powder but this time, I embossed on vellum. The look is just beautiful!
I think what I like the best is the shine. However there are embossing powders with texture, like distress powder or tinsel. Then with the embossing folders and ink, inking the plastic folders themselves or inking the paper. There really is more options and ideas then you would ever think!
