Just Add Ink #460: Emboss Resist

Hello friends! This week’s challenge from Just Add Ink was suggested by Lou from With a Bow on Top and is the fun technique of Emboss Resist; it’s a great technique for backgrounds or focal images. 

I’ve used it to create the focal image for my card and I’ve popped it up with adhesive foam dots for added dimension:I embossed the dandelions from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in black and this photo picks up the lovely shine and texture!

Shimmery White cardstock was perfect for water colouring and I used  an acrylic block and three lovely Stampin’ Up! ink colours (Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Mango Melody) to create the bright background: 

The sentiment “wishing you brighter days to come …” is from the Bright Wishes stamp set (retired) and I stamped it on a subtly embossed panel of Purple Posy cardstock; such a soft and pretty new in colour 🙂

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today and I hope this gives you a little inspiration! Megan xo

  1. I love you mango and purple colour combo Megan so vibrant and reminiscent of sunsets! It also makes a stunning back drop for your embossed dandelion flower. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim

  2. I love the way your colours pop against the black silhouette of the dandelion, Megan! It’s such a striking design and the black frame and soft Posy background show it off beautifully. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. I love these colours together Megan. They are so striking and look like they are swirling away with the dandelion petals. Thanks for joining us this week at Just Add Ink.
