Tutorial – Emboss Resist…

Below, is a very simple tutorial to the great Technique – Emboss Resist.  I used this technique on this card

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Pocket Silhouettes
Inks – Daffodil Delight, Pool Party
Cardstock – Whisper White
Ink – Versamark
Accessories – Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Embossing Powder – White, Tissue, SU Sponger, Powder Tray

Instructions –

  1. Using your Embossing Buddy, rub over entire piece of Whisper White Cardstock – this will stop your Embossing Powder from sticking in the wrong places
  2. Ink your stamp using Versamark
  3. Stamp image direct onto Whisper White Cardstock
  4. Pour White Embossing Powder over your stamped image – be liberal with your powder
  5. Pour/Tap off excess onto a piece of paper or a Powder Tray & pour immediately back into the jar
  6. Heat image, being careful not to burn your cardstock. It will melt into a nice shinny image
  7. Using SU  Sponge & Daffodil Delight & Pool Party Inks, sponge over stamped images & cardstock until you are happy with the result
  8. To add a little more depth to your image, stamp image using the same colour inks you used for your sponging
  9. Buff images using a soft tissue – embossed images resist the sponged ink
  10. Complete & Embellish card

I hope this tutorial is very clear & not too complicated.  If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me – vickiawright@bigpond.com
