Hello stampers and happy Wednesday. Oh the magic of embossing! While this was one of the first techniques I learned, even before the die cutting machine, emboss resist takes it to a new level. Today I am going to show you two emboss resist cards that are very simple to do and very different in their finished look.
When you do an emboss resist card you start by embossing your image, usually in white but other colours work as well. Depending on which cardstock you used, you can either sponge ink over top of your embossed image or you can do a colour wash with an aqua painter over your image. With today’s cards I used a sponge and ink. If you watch my daily Facebook live videos at 3pm then you have seen me make this first sunflower card.
Echoing the Colours of Yesterday
I loved the colour combination so much from yesterday’s Bargello technique cards that I decided to replicate it on this card. Why not make the sunflowers funky rather than realistic? It is amazing how the card looks completely different just by switching up the colours and changing the shape of the sentiment. What I really like about both of these cards is the addition of a spattering of water droplets. You could use a toothbrush to do this but I had a flat brush that I use for brushing away excess embossing powder. Just wet the brush and then give it a sharp flick so that you get a few water droplets falling on your card. They leave a great watermark which you can then accentuate with frosted or clear epoxy droplets.
If you would rather see the technique rather than reading about it, check out this video. I am really enjoying hearing where everyone is from and watching the community grow. It would be great to hear from YOU. What do you like about the videos or my blog? The more interaction there is between me and my readers and viewers the more likely you will see and read what you want to. A great example of that was yesterday’s video. Someone had requested sympathy cards, so that is what I made.
