This week at Just Us Girls, it is TREND week. We are creating cards with the Emboss Resist Technique. Anita Bowden first introduced me to layered resist. The technique can be tricky until you get the hang of it.
I started with white cardstock, distressed the entire panel in Dried Marigold. Then stamped the first flower in VersaMark and clear heat embossed. Then I distressed the entire panel in Spiced Marmalade showing the first flower.
This is a long process requiring patience, but worth it. You have to make sure every layer is dry before moving to the next layer. As Julie Ebersole says… Ask me how I know!
You need to dry the panel with your heat gun and use an anti-static powder to ensure it is ready to be stamped again in Versamark. I stamped and clear embossed the flower, trapping the Spiced Marmalade color, before blending the next layer with Picked Raspberry. I repeated the process again, trapping Picked Raspberry, and ended with Seedless Preserves. The only advice I can give you… think about your colors and the order in which you plan to blend them.
