Embossing Resist Technique

November 26th, 2008 · 10 Comments

Embossing Resist Technique

Kristina Werner has a festive color inspiration challenge this week (#32): Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand (or a metallic), Very Vanilla, and Whisper White. I combined her colors with the Embossing Resist Technique.

I started by stamping the large snowflake from the Holiday Collection set with VersaMark ink on Very Vanilla card stock and embossing the images with silver powder. Then I stamped the small snowflake and embossed those images with clear powder. Riding Hood Red ink was sponged all over the panel, and the snowflakes were wiped clean with a paper towel.

The sentiment was first stamped with VersaMark ink on Brushed Silver card stock and silver embossed. I then stamped it with Riding Hood Red ink on Glossy White card stock and cut out the center. I pierced two holes for the silver cord to go through and tied the cord into a bow on top of the taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
