Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend! Our new challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #44 March Anything Goes! I actually CASE’d one of my own cards that I made for another DT a couple months ago – a pretty mixed media friendship card featuring the emboss resist technique with white heat embossing and inked background on the front and stamping on the inside.
I cut the card base with the largest die in the set. Then I stamped the background in Versamark and heat embossed it in white. Then the emboss resist fun began. I inked the background in graduating colors of distress inks, starting with the darkest at the top, and overlapping each color slightly as I went down the panel. I cut the panel with the second largest die in the set and traced around the outside of it on the back of a piece of coordinating cardstock (which I fussy cut) to get a slightly larger layer. I did the same technique for the sentiment layer and turned it sideways on the front of the panel. I cut the sentiment from shimmer cardstock and added a Tim Holtz metallic sentiment sticker. The final touch was a few drops of Crystal Drops.
After cutting the inside panel, I used the same technique of tracing around the second largest die in the set on the back of a piece of coordinating cardstock (which I fussy cut) to get a slightly larger layer. Then I stamped the sentiment from Clarity Stamp.
One more peek… I really love how this card turned out! Emboss resist is such a cool technique!
