How to do Emboss Resist Technique with Stencils | Lydia’s Crafty Corner VIDEO

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone and happy Friday! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing an ink resist technique using Sketchy Floral Stamp Set and Floral Drape Stencil.

20200102 161022Firstly, I stamped the large floral image from Sketchy Floral Stamp Set onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using Obsidian Ink. I then placed Floral Drape Stencil around the stamped image. I colored the image using blending brushes. For the flowers, I used Pink Pearl and Coral Bliss Inks for the petals and Butternut Ink for the flower centers. For the leaves, I used Lime and Fresh Leaf Inks.

20200102 161424Once all the coloring was complete, I added Embossing Ink all over the ink blended images. Then I removed the stencil and added Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. This left me with beautiful glossy images that would resist any other ink. I then added a dark ink blended background using Dark Night Ink.

For the sentiment, I used Sentiment Strips Stamp Set matted onto a piece of patterned paper from Essential Black & White 6×6 Paper Pack.
