Hello crafty peeps! Edna is looking kinda scary all embossed and all, eh? Which happens to be the new challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! We want to see your embossing techniques! I was under the gun, and so did a very easy technique: I used a q-tip and white ink to age the embossed gears on my background and also to make them stand out more:
