Technique Tuesday - White Resist Double Embossing

This Techique Tuesday I am sharing one of my very favorite techniques.  I used white embossing powder, clear embossing powder, and pigment ink pads to create this card.

The floral panel attached to this card was created with double embossing.  Here is the technique:

  • Emboss flower stamp (Hero Arts) with white pigment ink and white embossing powder.
  • Using desired shades (in this case blues and greens) of pigment inks, rub inks directly onto the card panel, over the embossed image. Use three or four colors, starting with the lightest color and working up to the darkest color.
  • Use a tissue to gently blend the colors of inks, and to remove the pigment ink from the embossed image.  Do not rub tissue too long, as you want the ink to remain slightly wet.
  • Pour clear embossing powder over the entire stamped panel, then heat and emboss.  The white image will "pop" out, and the inked background will be embossed with a glazed finish.
To finish constructing the card:
-Tear scrapbook paper and attached it to a blue A2 card.
-Stamp swirl stamp (Hero Arts) on the bottom left with white ink.
-Attach the embossed panel to a white torn panel, about 1/2" larger all around, then distressed it with blue and green inks. 
-Stamp BELIEVE onto blue scrap and distress.  Attach straight pin threaded with beads.  Attach to panel.

That's it!  I do love this technique.  Try it with some fall colors for your fall and thanksgiving cards! Let me know how you do - I'd love to see your work!
