Sketch #81

Good morning sketchies, 

We have a brand new challenge for you today -

A layout sketch!

Our current challenges are usually based around a card sketch (but can be used for either), so I thought I would add in a sketch just for the scrapers out there. We will continue to have our 2 card sketches (1st and 15th of the month) and we will now also have the layout sketch on the 16th. This new challenge will run for a month and end on the 15th of the following month (prior to the new challenge starting). Your entry into the layout challenge will gain you entries into the monthly prize draw.

So without further adieu here is the sketch and inspiration from the wonderful design team.

Inspiration Post: "Emboss Resist Technique"!!

Hey Everyone!! This is Elina with an inspiration post for you all!! I decided to do my post on a technique I've been doing recently called "Emboss Resist". It's basically stamping onto white cardstock (or any color for that matter) using VersaMark ink. You then add your white embossing powder (for this project I used Antique Ivory from Stampin Up), heat set it and add another layer of color on top. Where ever you embossed, it resists the color and stays white. It' a cool technique that you can use for creating a nice background or sentiment to your project.
Here is a list of the things I used and a step by step photo representation of the process:

-VersaMark ink pad
-Embossing powder
-Heat tool
-Stamps ( I used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Set)
-Stamp Block or Press
-white cardstock

To start off, I arranged my stamps on my stamp press.

Then stamped onto the white cardstock using VersaMark ink.

Added the ivory embossing powder to cover the entire panel.

Heat set it with my heat tool.

I added Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa inks from Stampin Up to add color to the panel.

Love how the ivory embossing powder just pops off this panel.

Now you can use this embossed piece to decorate the front of a card or on a layout.

I chose to do a card and here's the pic for that:



I hope you enjoyed this post and got inspired to try this technique for yourself!!
