Emboss Resist using Distress Inks

Hey guys,

This is Khushboo this side with my turn to showcase something with distress inks... I am new to the whole world of distressing and still taking baby steps in picking up tricks.. There is just so much one can do with these small ink pads which last forever... For some gorgeous inspiration you can check the previous words by the DT which is really inspiring and knowledgeable..

Now onto my turn.. There are a lot of things one can do with distress inks and I am concentrating on resist embossing.. Now, resist embossing can be done with a lot of ways, embossing powders, UTEE, glossy accents, acrylic paints, crayons, etc.. the list is quite exhaustive.. I have used my embossing powders to create a background for a card using the resist technique.. This technique can be used to create varied backgrounds with some really cool results..

Step 1: cut your card stock to size and distress it with different colors of inks. I used the brustro water color paper for distressing as it gives a very vibrant finish to my inks..

Step 2: I inked a script stamp and stamped onto the distressed card stock. then using my Versamark ink and clear embossing powder I created a flowery background

can you see the clear embossing powder???

Step 3: use your heating tool to melt the embossing powder.. My heat gun has died on me so I used a griddle..

Step 4: use a dark color distress ink to cover the entire area of the card stock.. The areas which have been clear embossed will resist ink


Step 5: Now use it as you wish.. I made a card using it..

Heat embossed the sentiment on vellum using gold embossing powder...
