After watching a video by Jennifer McGuire I was inspired to play with the emboss resist technique and ended up making a total of 18 cards. Over the next several days, I will share all of the cards with you. To begin the emboss resist technique, for each card I stamped my background stamp with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used a color of Distress Ink to blend making the color depth darker at the top of the card and and using a lighter touch and less ink near the bottom of the card.
I used the same color of Distress Ink to blend ink over a piece of white card stock and heat emboss a sentiment on it.
