I'm so happy to share today that I'm guest designing at AAA Cards Challenge blog for their Challenge # 92- Emboss Resist. I was a winner of their Challenge #87 and I didn't think twice when I was asked if I would like to guest design for one of their challenges. I have always enjoyed their fun themes. Thank you, Jane, for giving me this opportunity.
Emboss resist has been one of the most popular techniques amongst all the cardmakers. If you haven't tried it yet, you can do that now.
Here's my inspiration for the challenge:-
I started off by stamping the sentiment from My Favorite Things- Brushstroke Birthday stamp set in Versamark ink on a Brustro watercolour paper panel. I then heat embossed it using Ranger's white embossing powder.Then, I sponged different colours of distress inks over the embossed sentiment. Heat embossed areas resist distress inks and watercolours, and that's why the sentiment won't take any colour from the inks. Just to make it look more prominent, gently swipe over the sentiment using a soft cloth or a baby wipe to wipe off the inks over the embossed areas.
Just to add a little interest to the card, I decided to die cut two hearts from one end of the sentiment and pop up one heart die cut over the letter 'J'.
Although I did have an urge to 'just add a little something more' to the card, I'm glad I resisted it because I love how effective this looks in all its simplicity. What do you think? :)
