Another Twist with Emboss Resist

Hello friends!

I am happy to share a new take on Emboss Resist. If you take a look at my card, you may think I applied "Emboss Resist" Technique.  Well, let me tell you.... "Not exactly.".

The December Clubs are now available. Join now through December 27th to receive the pictured kit, plus a Merry Member Appreciation Gift.

Now it's even easier to join the club. You can now purchase club subscriptions and store products in the same checkout.

This month's "My Forever Person" Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die set is perfect for making cards, decor, and more.

I am using this month'"My Forever Person"as an example. I must tell you that there is other way to achieve an Emboss Resist look without failures. Why failures? There will be time that you mess up the inks and embossing during the embossing process. For my card, I did the reverse.


TWO key elements on successful "Emboss Resist".

1. create a colorful background: I applied gouache to watercolor paper and let dry.

2. embossing: you can emboss as many times as you like to ensure the lines are clear and prominent. I did white-embossing twice to ensure the white lines are showing through. You will need a MISTI for this purpose.

As you can see, the word "LOVE" is beautifully colored and embossed. It has the emboss resist look, but the process is slightly different.

I created the border with the letter "L". I simply colored the lower part of L and did some masking.

As for the sequins? They were added to cover up some "imperfection from stamping. See? It is not what it seems.... this is the beauty of creating. I'm sure you'd agree. Hope you enjoy today's post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the emboss resist! Sometimes when we add an embellishment to cover an imperfection, it seems to be what was needed anyway!
