Can you resist the Emboss Resist Technique? I couldn't, and the flower from Blooming with Kindness was the perfect image to play with.
- Start with a light colored piece of card stock–I used Baja Breeze for this card. Wipe the card stock with the Embossing Buddy. Ink the stamp with a clean VersaMark Pad, and stamp the image on the card stock.
- Sponge over the embossed image with a darker color of ink. (I used Perfect Plum.) The embossed areas will resist the ink, and you can wipe off the excess with a napkin or paper towel.
I decided to use the Floral Frames Framelits to cut out the flower once it was embossed and sponged. Then I added a touch of Elegant Eggplant to the edges to make it POP even more.
The larger Floral Frame, stamped with an image from the Daydream Medallions stamp set provided the perfect background.
That's it! So simple, yet so impressive. Of course this is only one way to use this technique. You can use other colors of Embossing Powder, and/or sponge with more than one color. Check out this Thanksgiving Card for a good example.
Are you ready to try it? I hope this has inspired you to go play with this oldie-but-goodie technique. You'll be making beautiful handmade cards that will WOW whoever you give them to.
