#techniquethursday - emboss resist


Just like I promised on Tuesday I'm back to show you how I did the emboss resist technique on the card I made.  This is another great way to use embossing.  If you've not heat embossed before I suggest you check out my post here which will demonstrate the first 3 steps in this card.  


Step one.  Pick your colours (make them either complimentary like I did today, or clashing like I did on Tuesday), your stamp & get your embossing powder (clear) and heat gun ready.

Step 2.  Heat emboss your stamped image on whisper white or very vanilla card.  Don't know what head embossing is?  You can learn how to do it here.  

Step 3.  Using a sponge dauber and your lightest ink first start sponging over the top of your embossed image.  The ink will stain the card but resist the embossed areas which will appear as white.  Gradually build up the shades you want and use the darker inks on specific areas to define the image further.

Step 4.  Assemble your card.

That's it.  Pretty easy - but another great technique.  It really makes an image pop and the effects you can get with sponging are unlimited.


Hope you like this technique and give it a go.  I'd love to see if you've made anything using it.  If you're stuck or having troubles leave a comment below and I'll try and help you out.

Happy crafting.

Sally
