Emboss Resist Technique

The Less is More Challenge this week is the 'Emboss Resist Technique', a new technique for me.  This was my first attempt and I'm sure it won't be the last!

I chose an old wood mounted Penny Black stamp with quite a simple design.  The image was stamped with an embossing pad and heat embossed using clear embossing  powder.  I sponged over the image using an Adirondack 'Raspberry' ink pad and used the same ink pad to stamp the sentiment.  I added some faux stitching using a fine liner pen.  
I am joining in the following challenges:

This is very pretty Liz and the lovely flowers clear embossed look fabulous with that bright pink DI. I love the added faux stitching and a sentiment in the pink to match. x

Liz said...

I think I got a bit carried away with the pink ink, Pat. I didn't intend it to look so vivid! LOL! xx

I can't believe it's your first one, Liz! I love lots of techniques, but emboss resist is probably my favorite--partly because I have such limited coloring skills & it always turns out great, as yours did!

So lovely CAS with your embossed flowers and this pink tone! The faux stitching is a very pretty detail! This is a technique that I love, but I don't use it enought!

Bravo Liz! This was really your first attempt at the technique? You have made a such a beautiful card. The vibrant pink is wonderfully lively and your attention to the details on this card is flawless. Well done! Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

I love the warm, vibrant pink! It looks great how you've pulled the same colour out into the sentiment too. Very neat stitched line - I thought it was stamping! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
