{Tue} Technique: (Heat) Embossing Resist Technique

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

If you saw the scrapbook page from Monday (if not, click HERE), there's a way to make your own resist paper using the (Heat) Embossing Resist Technique.
You'll need embossing ink pad (I use VersaMark), clear embossing powder, heat gun and a big flower stamp: 

Ink stamp with VersaMark and stamp on white carstock, sprinkle clear embossing powder and shake off excess. Heat emboss with a heat gun. Repeat several times, depending on how many flowers you would like on the cardstock.


Another way to do it...instead of stamping the images separately, you could mask the first stamped & embossed flower, and repeat stamp-sprinkle-heat emboss overlapping the images several times.

I used Club Scrap Dahlia Art Nouveau unmounted stamp for the cards below (although, instead of masking, I just used a paintbrush to brush off powder from the overlapped images):

I also embossed a panel in black UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) for Club Scrap's April Technique Challenge: Faux Stained Glass. Then, I colored them with All-Purpose Inks and a little bit of Ink Potion no.9 (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko):

And these are the cards I created with the panels...
