TGIFC118 - Technique Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another TGIF Challenge, this time featuring the emboss resist technique! There are so many ways to use this technique. After you heat emboss, you can watercolor, sponge or spray your ink over the image, which will resist the ink!


I chose to watercolor over my heat embossed greetings. I stamped them in Versamark ink, and heat embossed them with clear powder onto Watercolor Paper. I wet the watercolor paper with plain water first, and then colored over it with each of the ink colors (Berry Burst, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango and Lemon Lime Twist) using an Aqua Painter. After doing this, the greetings stay white!
