IN COLORS MEET EMBOSS RESIST TECHNIQUE

If you have never tried this variation of the emboss resist technique, you will love it! Emboss resist is basically just applying ink over an embossed image, wiping off the excess and basking in the glorious results. I used the tree from "Serene Silhouettes" and a sentiment from "Four You" for this card:

The difference in this variation of the emboss resist technique is using a light color pigment ink instead of a water-based dye ink, and you need a dark color cardstock. I stamped my trees and sentiment with Versamark ink onto Mossy Meadow cardstock, heat-embossed with clear powder, then sponged over the ENTIRE PANEL with White Craft Ink. To finish, rub ALL the white ink off the embossed images with a clean cloth or paper towel. Keep going to a clean spot on the cloth so you don't rub the ink back on.
The white ink creates a new, lighter version of the cardstock color so tearing the edges adds more color and texture to the design.
TIP: the thicker your embossing the better this technique works so be sure you have a well-inked stamp and lots of powder on the image. If you end up with some white-ish areas on the image, color a bit with a marker.
