Faux Dry Embossing

There's a great challenge today over on SCS here. It shows you how to do a 'faux' dry embossed look on a card. Basically, you stamp your image in white craft ink. Once it's dry, you stamp the same image again but just a smidge to the right in the same colour ink as the cardstock. You get this clever 'shadow' effect around the image and it looks embossed. Give it a go, it's fun!
Stamps : Bella Blossoms (my new fave!)
Cardstock : Mellow Moss and PTI White
Ink : Mellow Moss, White Craft
Accessories : SU Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon
