My first card for our lessons on days 5 and 6 entitled Backgrounds into the Foreground uses emboss resist to create the background, and then the embossing is ironed off so that none of the shine remains. It is a cool way to create a patterned piece.
I chose the Hero Arts Square Pattern Background CG458, and embossed it with clear powder using versamark ink. Then I applied distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, and Peacock Feathers to the unembossed areas using a waterbrush. Then the iron came out (gotta use it for something).
Applying heat with a paper barrier between the iron and the embossed piece removed all the embossing leaving a matte cardstock piece with the coloring intact. I applied a bold sentiment, that pattern is bold so it needed a statement, from Technique Tuesday called Incredible.
Thanks for stopping by, I will have one more homework item today, but first I must make dinner.
