Most of the time we stamp colored images on to white paper, but sometimes it's nice to have a white image on a colored background. If you have an opaque white ink you can usually get a pretty good image, but if you don't, or if you want a more customizable background, the emboss-resist technique is a good choice.
Here's what you need:
- stamp of choice (I used the new Blush Thanks stamp)
- white cardstock
- Versamark ink
- clear embossing powder
- Distress ink
- heat gun (not shown)
1. Generously ink the stamp with the Versamark inkpad.
2. Stamp your image onto the cardstock.
3. Cover the stamped image with embossing powder and shake off the excess.
4. Heatset the image until the embossing powder melts.
5. Tap the sponge onto the Distress Ink to pick up some color. Then dab and/or rub the sponge over the image - the embossed image remains white while the cardstock becomes colored!
6. Continue inking the image until it looks as desired.
7. (optional) Lightly mist the image with water to blend the ink. (I followed this step in my sample)
8. Trim the image and mount it to your card.
And there you have it! You can experiment with different colored cardstock and different colors of Distress Ink to get a look that is uniquely yours.
