Pattern Embossing


This is another card that I made a while ago for a challenge on Stamp TV but have not yet shared on my blog. The challenge was to do pattern embossing, which used the emboss resist technique.

All the stamps are from Gina K's Bold Flowers Stamp set.
I started with a piece of white cs. I stamped the crackle background all over the cs with Melon Mambo ink. I stamped the center of the flower with Melon Mambo ink then stamped the actual flower, stems and leaves in versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

If I am doing the emboss resist technique, I will put on two coats of clear embossing powder because sometime the embossing powder does not completely cover the image and leaves small areas not embossed. When that happens and you sponge or brayer ink over the embossed area, the ink will stick to those un-embossed areas.

My next step was to used a rectangle nestibility to cut the image to the size that I wanted. Before I removed the image from the diecut, I sponged Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip ink to completely cover the cs on the inside of the diecut...still with me? I wiped the ink off the diecut before removing the cs...if I do not do this I tend to leave smudges all over my project. Next wipe the ink off the flower images that were embossed to reveal the flowers and used my heat tool over the embossed flowers to bright them back up.

The flowers in the upper corner were stamped on Melon Mambo with Versamark ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and punched out with the matching Marvy flower punch. I finished off the card with a ribbon bow and added pearls to the center of each flower.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
