Here’s another technique card from this month’s Stamp Club. It’s called Emboss Resist and it’s a great technique when you want to feature a large solid image stamp.
1) stamp your solid image with versamark ink pad
2) cover with clear embossing powder (powder will stick to the versamark ink)
3) use heat tool to emboss the clear powder. You’ll know it’s set when the image is nice and shiny.
4) sponge crumb cake ink starting in the center of your embossed image and work your way out toward the edges. HINT: less is more–you can always add more ink, so start light.
This technique would be great with color too! Try sponging a complimenting ink color, and watch your image pop.
Have a great Monday and let me know if you have any questions!
