trapped resist

Hero Arts Large Floral cling background, unknown patterned paper, Hero Arts Navy Mid-tone ink, Navy yardstick (unknown), Nenah Solar White cradles, Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Here is another technique in my series from the Online Card Classes, Inspiration Showcase by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.

Here is the next resist technique, trapped resist. In this technique you stamp a large background over a stamped image or patterned paper (as I did here) and then clear emboss over it. The patterned or stamped image is "trapped" in the clear embossing and when ink is rubbed into the non-embossed areas it can still be seen. 

I love the glossiness of the clear embossing powder. This technique is not easy, but the final product is worth it.


Ooops, just found that typo. Step 4 is Rub ink. Buff ink off the clear embossing. I will correct it on my tag. see you next time for more resist techniques, mel xoxo
