Tips, Tutorials, & Techniques - Framework Design

Heat embossing your stamped images creates a fun opportunity for playing with coloring techniques. The embossed lines provide texture as well as a barrier for color bleed. Choose watercolor or blended ink; loose, random color or precise application — there are so many ways to implement a variation on this technique. Our assortment of rubber background stamps allows you to create a full panel of pattern and color with a single impression…it doesn't get any easier than that!
