Two Techniques in One! Technique Page

Here is another technique page for the book. I was doing a bit of statistics math today and realized I need to make two or three technique pages a week to get enough for my book that I am offering as blog candy when my blog reaches 500,000 hits. You can view most of the other pages in the side bar on the right, just scroll down. There's two or three pages missing and I need to update it.

The page for today is the "Heat Embossing & Emboss Resist" techniques. You really can't do the one without doing the other so I just combined them. To do the Emboss Resist you have to do the Heat Emboss first so it was easy to just lump them both together in one technique page.

Ink you stamp with the VersaMark pad. Stamp image on your glossy card stock. Sprinkle card stock with clear embossing powder and heat to set. Ink up your sponge and apply ink over the entire piece of card stock. You can use multiple colors of ink if you wish. Wipe off excess ink with a paper towel or tissue. Cut as desired. You can use colored card stock with the VersaMark pad, add colored embossing powders and heat to set. This is your basic heat embossing. The embossing resist is done using glossy card stock. You can have a lot of fun with these background papers.

It's a pretty fun technique and the emboss resist can get to be a bit messy with the ink and sponges but if you are careful you won't get a single bit on your fingers!!! I try to be careful. Key word here is "try!" It doesn't always work!!! LOL But I do have to say that I always have fun doing these techniques.

This (resist) is one of my favorite techniques. I like it because the embossing turns out nice and shiny, and I seldom add any other "bling" :)

Great pages. The techniques are great. I have been wanting to try the the heat embossing/emboss resist. Just didn't know where to begin. Thanks for posting this. Hope you don't mind me adding you to my blog.

I don't heat emboss very much, I have so many colors of powders just sitting there. Even with the embossing buddy I always leave a trail of embossing where I don't wish it to be.
