Dreams Come True
Good morning! Today I have a card to share that uses a fun technique. . .Emboss Resist. Emboss Resist shows the "underneath" of what is embossed on the card. I decided I wanted a colorful image, so I started by stamping the sentiments from the Light As a Feather Stamp & Die Combo onto a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. Next, I sponged inks onto the sentiments. I used red, a lime green, purple and blue. Once I was happy with the color, I stamped and embossed the feathers with clear embossing powder.
Here's where the technique gets really cool! I covered the cardstock with black ink. I kept applying black ink until I couldn't see the stamped sentiments underneath. Next, I wiped the "embossed" feathers with a paper towel to remove the black ink off of the feathers. The embossing resists the ink and reveals the sentiments and colors beneath! Cool, right? I die cut the panel using the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and wrapped some Silver Twine around the panel. I stamped pieces of the sentiments on Candy Corn cardstock and vellum to create more of a focal sentiment. As a finishing touch, I added some Rainbow Brights Sequins to add to the color splash!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
