Technique Tuesday: Emboss Resist

Emboss Resist: emboss on light cardstock with matching powder and then use a darker ink to bring out the images and create a wonderful effect.

This card uses one color of ink to pull the images forward.  I embossed white on white and then rubbed over it with a Baja Breeze inked sponge.  I used this technique both for the background and the heart.
I got this stamp set from attending Stampin' Up! Convention 2012.  I have not had a chance to play with it much so this was a lot of fun for me.  The layout is based on a sketch challenge at iSpy Sketches.

You can also use multiple colors to create a soft effect.  This card has medallions (from another set I got at Convention) embossed on it and then rubbed with three different colors.  A simple design with a unique look.
