Whoo Hoo Wednesday.....Emboss Resist Technique.

Hi, it's my turn to host Inspired by Stamping Whoo Hoo Wednesday and I'm going to show you a simple tutorial on the emboss resist technique.

You will need:

light colour pattern paper/cardstock 
VersaMark ink
white embossing powder
heat gun
coloured inks
paper towel

Using VersaMark ink, stamp your image onto the paper/card, I used the large doily from IBS Delicate Doilies II and cover the image with the white embossing powder, tip the excess back into the pot.

Heat the image with your heat embossing tool until the image becomes glossy be careful not to overheat as the image will flatten. It doesn't look much at the moment, the magic happens once you add the ink.

Sponge over the entire image with inks or PanPastels, I chose to use TH Distress ink, once you've got the depth of colour you want, wipe over with a paper towel, to take off any ink from the glossy white image, leaving you with a beautiful sharp image that seems to pop off the paper.

Here's my finished card.

Stamps- IBS Delicate Doilies II, IBS Fancy Sentiments (released on Saturday)
Papers- October Afternoon Thrift Shop, SU First Edition.

I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting
