Emboss Resist with a Stencil

Hello friends!
This month's Show & Share is announced. Please check the top right side link! 
I am popping in with a easy and fun project with a stencil. 
Simon Says Stamp kindly sent me a new stencil "Peony Bouquet Stencil" from their "Hey Besties" Release. This stencil is super popular, so grab it fast while supplies last!
This stencil has large opening with multiple peonies. It is perfect for doing Emboss Resist.
 Ranger Embossing It Dabber (limited quantities)
i love you  

The Ranger Embossing It Dabber  makes is easy to try out this techniques. This dabber is also great for doing partial embossing. It is a cross between your regular embossing pen and embossing pad.
 If you love embossing, this is one easy and inexpensive item to get!


Step 1: ink-blending--->I taped down the stencil with Washi and then applied Distress Oxide to each peony.  DISCLAIMER: I must admit that I did this before bed time..... so, my craftsmanship for the ink-blending was not at its best!
i love you-001

 Step 2: applying Emboss It Dabber---> The name says it all. I then dabbed the embossing ink over the inky area. This SEALS the color. This is when I poured the clear-embossing powder over and embossed it. If you look closely, you can see the clear-embossing over the floral images.
i love you

Step 3: apply ink all over the embossed image ----> I also used a little bit of watercolor brush pen and rubbed the colors over it. edited: I used just the regular card stock (110lbs)

This card is going to be for my hubby....LOL. I think this is his type of humorous sentiment.
We often poke fun at each other. The sentiment is quite fitting.

From Simon Says Stamp: As a special gift to you, any purchase of $50 or more between now and 1/12 (or while supplies last), will get the exclusive Friend Outline die FREE!

Lovely card and your explanation is great.

I will have to try embossing after stenciling. So you need a long drying ink so the powder sticks, but it's certainly a fantastic result and way to use materials. Fantastic idea.
