Emboss Resist

Hey long time no post from me....

I'm just here to show one of the many ways to do emboss resists...
I do not have a pictorial post, since I was just goofing around with inks and stamps.

Essentially there are many ways to do an Emboss Resist.
1) Ink your stamp with Versamark and stamp..
Sprinkle embossing powder of choice, heat it..
And color on top with distress inks/paints, chalk inks...etc.

Which would be something like this...

White embossed panel, distressed with 4 different shades of blue distress inks and misted with silver mist.

Color with distress inks first...Here I've used some random distress inks on the paper

Stamp it with Versamark and clear emboss...(Hope you can see the clear embossed butterflies)

And then color over with a darker ink so the ink that is trapped under the embossed butterfly shows through..I have used black ink, but any dark ink can be used. 

2)  Here I played around with a version of the first process....
Instead of using a stamp...I used an embossing folder.

Ink up any side of embossing folder with Versamark ink...(the key is experimenting)
Place your paper between the embossing folder and close it...use a book or your Cuttlebug plate to
apply even pressure on the folder.
The design will get transferred to the paper (we are not dry embossing here, only wet embossing..though you can again try both!)
Pour embossing powder and heat set it.
Using your inks, color over the embossed panel....

Here I have used the Stained glass Embossing folder from Craft Concepts, inked it with Versamark,
poured Charcoal Embossing powder....and then using sponge applied distress ink randomly...

I absolutely love the distressed look of this panel...
So hop on and give this swap a try....more than the Swap, its more about learning new ideas and experimenting!
