I think I’m kind of obsessed with the popular emboss resist technique partnered with Distress Oxide inks. With that said, I figured I needed to come up with something just a little different from my normal card fronts.
I started with one of my favorite large stamps—Simon Says Stamp’s Emma Background. I white heat embossed it onto the front side of an A2 top folding card base, and ink blended it with Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides. They just blend so smoothly and don’t leave any kind of harsh lines or marks. They are definitely easier to blend than the traditional Distress Inks. To emphasize the beautiful stamp image, I lightly wiped away any ink that was sitting on top of the embossing.
To change things up a bit, I decided to fussy cut around the bottom portion of the embossed image and stamp my greeting from Altenew’s Adore You stamp set below my cut edge. All that was left was to add a few matching sequins.
