Here are my second attempt of embossing samples that have been greatly more successful. The mount board has given a really accurate impression with clear and crisp lines. I think this was also helped by the chosen stock, the hand paper was very malleable and has really taken the impression well. I like how the embossing has given a great light and shadow effect that is really visible on these photographs as it really highlights the shapes and the texture which was the initial reason for choosing this process. When creating these designs I used the inside and outside shapes of the stencils to create a wider range of patterns that gives two samples for each design theme.
