Chrissie here and today I want to share how I do the resist embossing technique using embossing powder, distress ink, and a heat gun.
Let's get started!!!
First, stamp your image using VersaMark. I used the grid from Journal This.
Then, cover in embossing powder and use the heat gun.
Pull out your ink and cover it. For an extra layer, I like to add paint first, before the ink, but you don't have to do this. I just have a paint obsession. :-)
Just take a paper towel and rub it before it dries - the embossed area will stay pretty much clear of the paint. Use the same process with ink!!! I like to use a dauber with distress ink, but sponges will work, too, and you can really use any ink out there.
Rub the ink onto the paper and then just run a papertowel over it when you're done. This will remove that excess ink from the embossed areas. I did this on three different types of stock and then I die cut them into cute butterflies.
Then, I used my Large Polkadot Background stamp with distress ink to stamp onto the butterflies. I took my finger and rubbed the ink around once it was stamped, just to give it a more worn and vintage look.
I used a brush to spread the powder out, then I simply cleaned it off and brushed the excess powder away.
It gives a really fun effect that I think goes well with the vintage feel of this card. I added Circletastic to the side and some Washi tape.
I also die cut some buttons and stamped and distressed them, too. I used regular ink to stamp the rid and then I took the distress pad and just stamped straight onto the buttons.
I placed the buttons and the butterflies together onto the washi tape with some bling!
