Today's Technique is Emboss Resist and I used a catalog card from page 132 of Stampin' Up!'s 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog as the example for this technique. It is also one of the cards we created at my Catalog Kickoff Party this past weekend.
The technique is very simple: Stamp your design in Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Then sponge different colors over the embossed image. Once that is done use a tissue or paper towel to take off the excess ink. On this card Naturals Ivory card stock was used.The butterfly was die cut with the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Butterflies Die, then embossed and sponged.
The supplies used for this card can be found on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website, as well as, the Customer website. If you are one of my customers, contact me and I will send you the supply list. If you attended my Catalog Kickoff Party, you already have the recipe and instructions! Enjoy!
