color challenge - in red
felt & cps layout challenge

emboss resist thank you


In celebration of the newly announced Make it Monday that will be featured at Papertrey Ink in this next year, I have a card to share that uses the emboss resist technique that is part of the contest challenge today at Nichole's blog.


Emboss resist is one of my very favorite techniques to play with. You can go from just basic embossing and sponging color, to layering images and color to create amazing effects. You can see a couple past posts where I have shared projetcs using this technique here and here.  


For this project: first, I stamped all of my cardstock with the text background and let the ink dry completely. I stamped elements from the Giga Guidelines set and embossed them with clear embossing powder over the top of the text stamped cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in black and also embossed with clear embossing powder. After that, I sponged pigment inks onto the cardstock pieces. On the Rustic White cardstock I sponged a combination of Spring Moss and Spring Rain. On the kraft cardstock I sponged Fresh Snow. After I was done applying the pigment inks, I wiped the excess away from the embossed images with a slightly damp paper towel.

Make sure that you check out all of the projects that are contributed via Nichole's blog - you are sure to be inspired!
