I can't remember where I saw this simple idea, but it is so effective, especially on a stamped image like the Eiffel Tower from the Artistic Etchings set. I stamped the image twice on scrap whisper white, then punched it out to elongate the tower. The background was stamped with craft white ink, which is a great way of stamping on black cardstock. You do need to be patient as the craft white takes a lot longer to dry and you don't want to smudge all your hard work. I finished it off with a splash of real red and a gorgeous bow.
