Technique Blog Hop!!! Resist Embossing

If you've come from Rita's blog you are moving right along!
This is sooo cool. It's the latest blog hop and it's based on stamping techniques. Just hop along to the next blog at the end of this post for more fun techniques to add to your tool box.
My technique is called Resist Embossing and uses the "collector's edition" of the Grace Workshop Basic Kit exclusive stamp set!

Supplies Required (click each item if you need to know what it looks like or to order!):

Exclusive Ink of your choice

1. First, ink up your stamps with Versamark and randomly stamp them onto White Daisy or Colonial White cardstock.

2. Next, cover the versamark images in clear embossing powder and then dump the excess in your craft tray. You can even lightly flick the back of the paper to get stray powder off. I also like to use my blending pen to clean up the images for more precision.

3. With your craft heater, moving evenly over your powder, but not too close as you can burn the paper, evenly set the embossing powder. You will see it turn from a powder to the slick embossed image right before your eyes!

4. Once cooled (about 10 -15 seconds), you can then place the embossed paper on a desk pad or other scratch paper protecting your work surface.

5. Evenly ink up and roll the brayer in your ink of choice.

6. Brayer ink over the embossed images. It may look uneven in ink distribution and show lines, but continue to re-ink your brayer and provide more coverage where needed.

7. Give your paper several minutes as the paper soaks in the ink - you will notice those lines disappear.

8. Using a paper towel or tissue, lightly rub off excess ink from your embossed images. The White Daisy or Colonial White daisy should now be clearly showing through where you embossed giving you a beautifully patterned paper.

Here's the finished card!
