Today's Tip: Try your hand at emboss resist for a dramatic background!
This is a card I'll be teaching at a beginner embossing class this week at Wholly Scrap. The card is 4.25" x 4.25" and the main background image started out as a plain piece of white cardstock. I used VersaMark to stamp these images, from a new Tim Holtz stamp release, onto the white cardstock. I then embossed the images with white embossing powder. Once the embossing was dry, I used a blending tool and sponged Crushed Olive Distress Ink over the entire surface. I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the edges. All that was left to do was to add a sentiment, also embossed in white, and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly. Easy peasy!!
