Hi All, Welcome to today's blog post. Today I am showing you how to emboss resist a sentiment in a way so you can see the shadow which is also resisted from any inking blending.
Using my misti tool I have mounted the "for & you" stamps from the "Just For You stampset and stamped with a black ink a couple of times on the Neenah white cardstock as I wanted the bold sentiment to be solid black.
I then prepped the stamped image for embossing with my embossing buddy as I wanted to make sure when I stamp next with the versamark ink that the embossed image comes out clear.
I stamped with Versamark ink directly over the sentiment and also stamped it very slightly offset. By stamping it twice in the versamark ink and heat embossing clear ink over the top it will create a shadow.
This will be revealed once you blend ink over the top of the stamped sentiment image. As you can see from the above two cards you can with go as heavy or light touch with the ink blending.
Before I blended the blue ink I stamped the Magnolia's flowers stampset which I have coloured in with watercolour pencils then placed a mask over the top to ink blend around it.
The Just for You stampset has add on sentiments to build on the main sentiments. I stamped the add on sentiments on a strip of white cardstock which I mounted on the card with foam squares. To finish off the card I added some clear sequins throughout the card.
The finished piece was mounted on black and white matting.
