Sherrod Tuesday Throwdown - Emboss Resist

It's a new week and a new Tuesday Throwdown from Sherrod Studio! This wee we are challenging you to try your hand at emboss resist. I think there are few ways to do this but basically, you emboss an image in white or clear and then ink around and over the image. Your image will stay white and resist the ink. Just a little swipe with a tissue reveals the image!

I used the Santa hat from the Fresh Baked set. I stamped it randomly on white cardstock with Versamark ink and then sprinkled and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I sponged two different shades of red ink over the piece and even added just a touch of light blue ink. I wiped the images off and they popped right out!






















I kept the rest of the card simple, allowing the beautiful paper to add interest. The band of striped paper at the bottom was punched with an EKSuccess border punch. The saying is from the Christmas Greetings set.

Want to try your hand at this technique? Check out what the rest of the DT has created and then give it a try! You can find out all the details of the challenge at the Sherrod Studio blog. You might be chosen featured stamper the following week!

Have a creative day!
