Distress Oxide Inks Emboss Resist
by Nancy Penir

Hey there! I haven't done emboss resist in a while and thought it would be fun to create a bright background with Poppystamps Picnic Plaid.

Let's start with the finished card.

The Cardstock with the plaid was originally white. Take a look.

To begin I inked the white cardstock with 3 shades of Distress Oxide Inks; Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, and Picked Pistachio. You don't have to do a perfect job, just make sure to ink it down well.

Next the dried inked surface is stamped with Versamark. I used my misti, and gave it 2 stamps for better coverage. Then sprinkled all over with clear embossing powder, and heat set it.

Finally, a darker ink is applied, and the colors used originally show through. Isn't that neat? This is a great stamp to use, as there's plenty of solid, nearly solid and open areas to show lots of color.

Speaking of great things to use, Poppy's Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame & Stencil, frames my Picnic Plaid, and gives me a chance to stencil on ink colors that blend with my background.

I did 2 cards using this technique, and added the Blooming Poppy die inked the same as the frame poppies. Look closely to see the sentiment is white embossed on a vellum window. I thought it needed a bit of muting so the message would standout better. Sentiments from Picnic Plaid and Flower Garden.

I hope you give this technique a try, whether you've done it before or not, it really gives a great colorful dimension to a card.
