Photo Tutorial - Emboss Resist Technique with Water Colors

Hi everyone! This is Deepti Stephens here sharing a card with Heat Emboss Resist Technique with Watercolors! The stampset I used today is from Avery Elle and I love this Ikat design.

What is Emboss Resist Technique?
Emboss images on light colored cardstock, then apply darker ink or watercolors to make them "pop".
The embossed images resist water or ink, it's gives a beautiful popped up images! 

Look at that gorgeous shine and sparkle! You know - The watercolors I used today is Indian brand and I never thought that it would give such sparkle to my card.

I have a step by step tutorial for you.. 

I took a piece of cardstock and stamped the images from Avery Elle with Versamark Ink and Heat set it with White Embossing Powder.

Then I found this watercolor paints in my stash and I decided to use the gold and brown for my card. That brown turned out to a lovely peachy tone..

I applied a lot of water with a paint brush on to the heat embossed images.

I started adding the gold color slowly and then I moved on to the brown color and blended them with water. Look! how the images resist the watercolors!!

I let it dry for sometime and look how it turned out! Gorgeous isn't it ?

Finally I added some Clear Dust stickles and sequins here and there. 

I hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
