Paper Maniac Thursday - Emboss Resist

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Hello and welcome to another Paper Maniac Thursday!!!  This week the design team and I are trying out the technique Emboss Resist.  If you are not familiar with this technique there is a tutorial on SCS that is great.  But, I will explain how I made my card.

I started out with a light green piece of card stock, the same color as the sentiment panel.  I picked a leaf/flourish stamp from Thankful Flourishes by Our Craft Lounge and stamped it in a random pattern with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled clear embossing powder over the stamped images and then set them with my heat gun.  Then, I took a sponge and inked over the entire piece of card stock.  The embossing resists the ink.  It's magic, really!
You can see a bit of shimmer in the photo above.  That's the clear embossing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!!!
