The Emboss Resist Technique – with inking, embossing and water droplets is a perfect technique for the Winter Woodland Stamp Set!
I started by stamping the trees in Versamark ink, then I poured white embossing powder over them, tapped it off and heat set.
I sponged Something Borrowed over the trees (the embossed trees resisted the ink and stayed white…you will need to wipe it down with a tissue to remove the excess ink, but it does not stick!), concentrating more around the edges and in the corners. I finished off with a bit of Black Jack very lightly sponged around the top corners and edges.
I stamped the deer in Black Jack (our very dark grey ink) and stamped the bird on his bootie with Midnight (black)…I wanted the bird to be darker so he showed up…and he sure does! HOW STINKIN’ CUTE IS THS!?
I got the idea from Chrissie Tobas. Totally awesome.
A simple sentiment banner finished it off!
