I wanted to make a pattern on Melanie's hoodie from Just So Sporty and decided to use the embossed resist technique to add some snowflakes.
First I stamped the image on white card stock. Then I inked up three different sized snowflakes, from Magic of Christmas, using Versa Mark ink. I stamped them in a random pattern and then sprinked clear embossing powder over the image and melted it with my heat tool.
To avoid stray bits of embossing powder clinging to your card stock, rub your embossing buddy over the card stock before stamping. If you don't have an embossing buddy, a dryer sheet works like a charm. (That's what I do!)
After embossing, I sponged in some Bashful Blue ink. Then I sandwiched the image between some copy paper and ironed over it on a medium setting. This will pull the embossing way from the card stock and into the copy paper, leaving your snowflakes white and a smooth surface.
Next I went in with my Koh-i-noor pencils and added some darker areas, then cut out the image and assembled my card.
Here is the finished card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
