Emboss Resist Technique

If you want a different look for your card, try the emboss resist technique to showcase your stamped image.  The part that you embossed will not pick up the ink when you use your brayer to go over the image.  

I started with a card base of Whisper White cardstock, followed by a layer of Peach Parfait, and then another layer of Whisper White which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder and the Upsy Daisy Stamp Set.  I then took my brayer and rolled over the image with Night of Navy ink.  As you can see the image that was embossed resists the ink, therefore the term emboss resist.  I like this look when I am going for a nighttime silhouette or backround.  It is a much softer look that if I took Night of Navy cardstock and stamped Whisper White ink with my image.

Accessories:  Clear Embossing Powder #109130, Heat Tool #100005, Brayer #102395, Dimensionals #104430
