Emboss Resist Technique

Time is flying isn't it!  I am already doing Valentine's Day cards!  This card is simply beautiful.  I cased my own card for this one (see here).  This card uses the Emboss Resist Technique that I am going to teach you today!

Here is whatcha do:

First Emboss
Rub embossing buddy over cardstock. 

Ink up your stamp with Versamark ink, then stamp onto cardstock. 

Sprinkle clear embossing powder over image, and tap off excess. 

If you look closely you can see the hearts.

Use a heat tool to set image. 

Then Resist
Choose one or more colors of classic ink.  Ink up a sponge dauber and use a light hand and a swirling motion to ink the embossed image.  Continue sponging till the desired area is filled with color. 

You can even stamp over it.

Using a paper towel or tissue, rub the embossed area till the ink is gone.  Stamps will appear to be behind the embossed image.

Stamp Set(s) - Hearts a Flutter, Elements of Style
Card Stock - Raspberry Ripple, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
