Posted on 11 Aug 2015

Have ytou seen the new stamp sets from Chiswick? Well if not you are in for a real treat as they as simply wonderful.
My favorite I think for now is the heart set. It has a whole bunch of hearts on it – perfect for anything from the grungy teenager to the romantic soul.
For this resist card I used the scribble heart – and simply love the outcome.

Embossing and resist is still one of my favorite go-to techniques when it comes to stamps.
It is such a versatile and effective way of adding patterns and interest to a card.

step 1 – Stamp the heart image onto white cardstock using Versamark ink pad.

step 2 – Sprinkle the stamped image liberally with pearl embossing powder.
Shake off the excess embossing powder and return it to the container.

step 3 – Use your Chiswick heat gun and heat the image until the embossing powder is fully melted.
The powder is melted when the image turns shiny all over.
TIP: Make sure the entire image is heated and the powder melted – let it cool down before inking the image.

step 4 – Add some dye ink onto your craft sheet. Mist the ink with water and then dip the embossed image into the ink.
The ink will take to the cardstock and the embossed image will resist the ink.

The white images against the inked background is such a beautiful effect.
