Creating Backgrounds - Emboss Resist

Hi everyone, this is the third technique that I promised to post.  It is a version of an emboss resist technique.

Step 1 - Using Versamark Ink stamp the En Francais stamp onto a piece of Naturals White cardstock and emboss this with Stampin' Emboss Clear embossing powder.


Step 2 - Using Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pads apply ink directly onto the Clear-Mount Block F.  Always start with the Crumb Cake first, then Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso last.  Go lightly with the amount of Early Espresso that you use unless you want your piece to be quite dark.

Step 3 - Spritz the inked block with water using a Stampin' Spritzer.  The more water you use then the more the ink will spread on your Naturals White piece, if you want some white patches then go lightly on the water spritzing.  You can add more water to the block after you have stamped it the first time and reapply and this will move the ink around more.  The choice is yours depending upon the effect that you want, just experiment to get the effect that you like.


Step 4 - Stamp the block onto the embossed Naturals White cardstock and leave it sit for a few seconds to allow the ink to position itself on the cardstock.


Step 5 - Remove the stamp from the cardstock piece and blot off with a piece of hand towel.  You can let this dry naturally or speed up the process with a heat gun.


Step 6 - You can now use your background piece to make a card.  This is my finished card using the emboss resist background piece I created.
