Using Resist Embossing - Anita

Saturday, May 5, 2012

Howdy fellow bloggers! Are you having a great NSD so far? 
Welcome to the second annual crop with Frosted Designs.
Hopefully, I am not your first stop on the crop today and you have 
been enjoying the goodness all day long. Remember, the crop is here on the Frosted Designs 
BLOG and our Facebook Page, and it is going on all day today and tomorrow!
My challenge is to make a project with resist embossing.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can see a tutorial on it on my blog
HERE and I have another layout with the technique HERE 
For today I have some fun tags. I am thinking they will be perfect to use as gift tags!

For all three tags I have used the larger Ranger manilla tags and stamped them with the same stamp using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also used phrase stamps from Dyan Reaveley on each of them.
 I used a variety of spray inks and Inka Gold to add the color and show off the embossing. 
For this tag I used a Prima mistable, some seam binding, beaded ribbon, flowers, beads, and pearls.
For this one, I also used the wings stamp from Dyan Reaveley, my star punch from Fiskars, some pearls and bling, chipboard butterfly - colored with Inka Gold, and Impression Obsession stamp.
This one has some ribbon, some old sheet music punched with my Fiskars scalloped heart punch, twine, button from Basic Grey, Pearls, Mica flakes, and stamp from Just Right stamps.
Here is a close up of the embossing. You can see how the clear embossing powder resists the color that I added, giving it a very nice look. This is a very easy technique to do - you will really like it! 
Be sure to keep an eye on the BLOG and the Facebook page thruout the weekend. There will be
challenges, games and RAKs. Lots going on!!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
You have until Midnight, Monday, May 7th to upload your LO/Card/Projects here.
Have a great weekend~!

I used your technique on my card and for some reason it did not turn out as well as I had expected. I love the results (your results) so I gotta keep at it and maybe I will get lucky and make it look great!
