Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Favourite WOW! Technique. I chose the embossed resist technique for my card, as I think this is a great versatile technique.
I began by inking a panel of white card with a rainbow of distress oxide inks. I used the following colours:
I then dried the panel with the WOW Dual Speed heat tool, ready for embossing.
Next, I used the WOW Clear embossing ink with the Neat & Tangled Balloon Duo stencils to cover the panel with balloons. I then heat embossed them with WOW Clear embossing powder.
With a water spray bottle, I spritzed the panel with lots of water, then blotted it with a paper towel. This removes the colour from the panel but the embossed balloons will resist the water, keeping the strong colour trapped behind. I repeated the process a couple of times, drying the panel with the heat tool in between.
I dried the panel thoroughly, then ran it through my die cutting machine with a Heffy Doodle Stitched Rectangle. I then adhered the panel to my card base.
To finish, I heat embossed a Mama Elephant Birthday Messages sentiment onto black card, using WOW Opaque White Super Fine embossing powder. I adhered this with foam tape, then added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels to finish.
Have a lovely day,
