Nature's Prints Emboss Resist Technique for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Winners Blog Hop! Today I'm joining Kylie Bertucci and a group of very talented demonstrators for a blog hop around the world. I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop! I earned this honor with my card, Willow Tree. Thank you so much for voting for me.

Today's card was inspired by an old, but lovely technique, emboss resist, that Judy Harrison presented at our Technique Club. I have always loved this technique, so thought I would give it a try with the Nature's Prints stamp set. Let's take a step-by-step look at this card.

The first step is to stamp your image in VersaMark and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

I then blended Pool Party ink randomly over all the images.

Tahitian Tide was next brush-blended randomly around.

I decided to add Flirty Flamingo as a contrasting color.

Now, to add a deeper, pop of color, I went with Pacific Point. This color really made the images begin to pop. That's the effect you are trying to achieve with this technique.

The last, but most important step, is to wipe your artwork with a paper towel. I use a dry one. This removes the ink from your embossed images making them really stand out! The artwork was then cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die and adhered to an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock folded in half.

The thank you sentiment was stamped in VersaMark on Tahitian Tide cardstock, heat embossed with white embossing powder, punched out with the Lasting Labels punch, and adhered over a piece of Petal Pink ribbon to the upper left-hand corner of the card front.

I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Links to the supplies I used are at the bottom of my post.
