Multi-Layer Emboss Resist Sympathy Card
This card was inspired by the technique shown in this video. I love how the background words “fade in and out” across the panel under areas of lighter and heavier sponged ink and behind the solid, embossed images.
To achieve this look, I started by repeatedly stamping a greeting on the white background panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then, I stamped the leaves with versamark ink, added clear embossing powder, and heat set them. Once cooled, I sponged Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink (with varying pressure) over the embossed leaf images and around the edges of the panel. The embossed areas resisted the ink allowing the stamped background words to show through. Sponging over these leaves also caused the area around the leaves to be highlighted.
I stamped the greeting on a small, white panel. I then masked the area over my greeting with a torn piece of a post-it note and sponged and spritzed that as well.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
