I thought I would share a little embossing resist tutorial with you today, which I am sharing on the Scrapmuch? blog. You will need Versamark, clear embossing powder, a heat gun, and a couple of contrasting colours of mist.
I have created a card with this technique, but it would also be great on the background of a layout.
Start by stamping and embossing an image onto your base, heat set the embossing powder.
Now spray a little mist onto a craft mat (or a piece of recycled plastic - I try to reuse all my crafty garbage at least once before I toss it) you will want a little puddle of each, you do not need a lot.
Using a baby wipe or a foam brush rub a little of the deepest colour across your embossed image, going a little wider than the image in all directions.
Give the image a little clean up with a baby wipe to make the embossed
area more visible. The embossing gives you some working time.
Repeat the last two steps for each colour you choose to use.
After a final wipe, I used the tube / paint stamping technique from last week to put a ring around the age of the recipient of this card to play up on the image. Then I mounted my base onto a card front and stamped a birthday sentiment.
I think I will give this a try on a layout, I think it could be a fun way to highlight some random stamping.
Thanks for visiting!
