Technique Tuesday -- Building a scene using embossed resist

Hi and welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday! My technique today is a mouthful, but the title describes it perfectly. Here is the card I made with the technique. I hope you will join me and make a scene of your own!

Supplies needed:
  1. white card stock
  2. clear embossing powder -- I used Sparkle EP107
  3. about 3 colors of ink -- I used yellow, aqua and light green
  4. ink colors to stamp with -- I used blue, green and purple
  5. black ink for edging
  6. Versa Mark ink
  7. sponge
  8. paper towel
First stamp the grass using Versa mark ink. Then add the Sparkle embossing powder and heat set.

Start sponging on the colors of ink starting with the lighter colors and going to the darker colors. You can see that the embossed grass is resisting the ink. If needed you can wipe off any ink left on the grass with a paper towel.

Now go back and build your scene using other stamps and ink colors.

To finish the scene, I used a corner rounder punch and sponged black around the edges. I hope you will try making a scene of your own! Not the rowdy kind though! LOL! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

April, this would make a beautiful piece of home decor, wouldn't it? I love this technique, but have not mastered it yet - I keep on messing it up. Must be a user problem for sure. Your colors are amazing, and the scene is gorgeous - did you stamp the background flowers with regular dye base ink? (the same ink as used in coloring your sky?) Thanks for teaching me something new, April, and for giving my eyes a big treat. hugs, de
