Messy Mondays: Move those Mountains
Welcome to another Messy Monday! Today I will be sharing a emboss resist technique that I love to do. Grab out your embossing powder, heat gun, and watercolors and let's get started.
Since I had all my materials out, I decided to mass produce some unique cards using my MISTI tool. To start off, I cut out some pieces of Canson XL watercolor paper and flipped it to the smoother side and dusted them with my anti-static tool. Next, I mounted the stamps I wanted to use from Wplus9 Encouraging Words set to my MISTI. Placing my paper in my MISTI, I inked up the images with VersaMark. The MISTI made it so easy for me to stamp multiple cards at once. Being a sticky ink, you won't have to worry about the ink drying on you while you stamp the other cards. After all the cards were stamped, I used Simon Says Stamp fine detail white embossing powder to heat set my images. This was done quickly as I did them all at once and my heat gun was nice and hot.
Now comes the fun part that makes each card unique. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to paint on top of my stamped images. The embossed images will resist the paint and any paint that remains after the panel is dried can be easily wiped off with a damp baby wipe. Have fun with different color combinations and mixture of soft/hard edges. Don't stress too much about it, as it will dry nicely. Promise.
After letting all the panels dried, I die cut each of them out using the largest rectangle from Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles set. Next I mounted them on a piece of colored cardstock before adhering them down to a premade colored side folding A2 card.
I hope you enjoyed this fun technique! I'll be entering this into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Try to Resist.
I am a girl who loves crafting and coloring images as my favorite form of therapy. I believe that as long as you create anything from the heart, it will be greatly appreciated and will bring a smile to the recipient's face.
