Favourite Technique at H2H

Today over at Heart2Heart we hope you will join us to share your favourite crafting technique! I decided to choose resist embossing. I have seen a lot of cards using this technique recently and find the results absolutely stunning. We are going to my cousin's wedding this weekend so I made this card for him.

To do resist embossing, first stamp your image(s) in Versamark ink. Next, sprinkle white embossing powder over the image(s) and heat emboss. Choose the colour you would like to go over top of the image. Using a sponge gently smudge the ink over the paper you would like coloured. You can sponge directly over the embossed image. Use a cloth afterwards to remove any remaining colour on the image. Voila! 
All supplies are Close To My Heart:
Ink - Canary; Stamps - Find Your Style; Pearl Opaques, Sparkles.

Hope to see you join us at Heart2Heart this month!

  4. Fabulous card! I love how the ink looks "perfectly" distressed. I also love the use of a butterfly for a wedding card.
