Ink &Inspiration - Favourite Technique

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today it is time for the Ink & Inspiration blog hop. The topic this hop is Our Favourite Technique. Wow, with so many techniques out there, how do you narrow it down to just one. In the end I settled for Emboss Resist.

So what is Emboss Resist?
 Simply put, its colouring over an embossed image.
 Now for the finer details. You start with stamping an image in Versamark, which is a clear sticky ink. Then you cover the image with embossing powder, shake off the excess. Use a heat tool and watch the powder magically melt to reveal your image with a lovely raised look now. Then grab a sponge, sponge dauber or even a brayer, and colour your card stock any colour you like. Your stamped image will start to show through like magic. When done colouring, rub your stamped image with a tissue to remove the colour from it and your stamped image will come to life. This works best on white card stock, using either white or clear embossing powder.

Here is my card using this fun technique.

It really looks nice, a bit of a neutral background with  the beige type colour and the Handwritten stamp set. But did you know that you can sponge with more than just our inks. On this card, I have actually used the Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. When you turn the card to the light, it takes on a whole new look. Just stunning. Good bye beige and hello shimmer.
