Hi Everyone! Here's a card showing the emboss resist technique. It uses images from Elements of Style stamp set ( w 118611, c 120045). We used this technique on one of the card class cards last month.

What is Emboss Resist? Heated embossing powder resists color. One can apply color then using a tissue or other dry cloth, gently rub off the color. The color stays on the card stock, but rubs off the embossing powder. The embossing powder resists the color.

Embossing supplies can be found on page 159 in the 2012-13 Annual Catalog. View online here!

How to Emboss Resist:
*prepare card stock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy 103083 over the surface to remove any static from the card (no random emboss powder sticks).
*Using VersaMark 102283, stamp image.
*Sprinkel embossing powder to cover image – tap off any excess powder.
*Using the Heat Tool 129053 - heat emboss
*Color image – can use any water based medium such as ink or chalk. Using sponges is perhaps the most common way to apply ink.
*With tissue, rub off ink over the embossed images.
