On this one I stamped the sentiment with brown Staz-On OVER the embossed image. I think next time I will try stamping the sentiment directly on the card first, and then stamping and embossing OVER it. Not sure it would remain clear (to my satisfaction), but it would be worth a try!
For this version I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate on Colonial White. Then I stamped over it with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I think I would have liked it better if I had used Cocoa instead of Chocolate. It would have been darker and stood out more. Oh well!
