Welcome to the Totally Techniques International Design Team blog hop! I am Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Canada, and you have just arrived here from the talented Nadine Weiner from Germany.
This month we are focusing on a technique called “Emboss Resist.” The basics of the technique are:
- Choose a bold stamp image (the more solid the better).
- Stamp the image in versamark ink.
- Sprinkle with embossing powder and heat emboss.
- Cover the embossed image with ink.
You can stamp on any kind of paper! One of my favourite things to do is stamp a bold image over designer series paper, so the embossed image shows the designs through it. I decided to try something a little different – I embossed on a Memories & More card!
You can see the design of the paper through the clear embossing powder after I brayered Flirty Flamingo Classic ink over the card.
For my second project, I experimented with the ink application over the embossing. This time I embossed the image in white embossing powder. Then I mixed 15 drops of old olive reinker with rubbing alcohol in a stampin’ spritzer. I sprayed over the image to be able to create the resist image. Again, I used Memories & More cards as the decorative paper.
I love how subtle the effect is!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop – we have a talented group of demonstrators from around the world sharing their version of this technique! Keep hopping by clicking the links below:
