Embossed Resist Technique
Happy Craftersday, everyone! If you look to the right you will see a card that I shared on Instagram that has been causing me grief for about two weeks. But, thanks to you guys I managed to save it.
The technique in today's post is embossed resist. This technique is simple and very easy to do. To do this technique I will be using my Altenew Mother's Love stamp set. This is a small 2" x 3" set and it might seem limiting but it will expand your imagination creativity once you start working with it.
- Altenew Mother's Love Set
- Anti Static Powder Tool
- Ranger White Embossing Powder
- 110lb Neenah Card Stock
- Wagner Furno 300 Heat Tool
- Altenew Purple Inks
- Mini Ink Blending Tool
1. Emboss. Stamp your image with your favorite watermark ink on your kraft card stock. I'm using Versamark. After it dries, pat it down with your anti static tool then sprinkle it with Ranger White Embossing powder making sure that your image is covered completely with no gaps. Warm up your heating tool then melt the powder.
2. Ink Blend. Using Altenew Purple inks and an ink blender, blend the ink over the embossed design. Once you get the ink down the way you want it, take a clean paper towel or cloth and wipe the ink off the stamped image. The ink will wipe away and leaving a clean embossed image that contrasts nicely with the blended ink.
3. Assemble. This was the part that caused me grief, it was like I had mental crafters' block and couldn't figure out what I was going to do with this card. I shared it with you all on Instagram and your wonderful suggestions got me back rolling again.
