When you aren’t sure what to do on a card, Distress Oxide emboss resist just might be the answer. What in the world is that, you say?
Don’t let this fancy name fool you. Remember by motto, “if I can do it, you can too.” I only do quick and simple techniques and this is one is super easy. All you are going to do is stamp, emboss, then blend with some Distress Oxide inks. Yes, it really is that simple.
For the beautiful flower on this card, I used the Daisy Delight stamp set from Gina K. As you can see, the large daisy takes up almost the entire front of the card.
How to Distress Oxide Emboss Resist
Let’s first talk about how to do this technique and then I will explain how to create the rest of the card. In order to emboss resist, you must first emboss
For this card, I used some white embossing powder and some VersaMark ink to stamp the flower. I always use a Misti positioning tool when I stamp so I can get perfect alignment. Stamp the flower with the VersaMark ink on a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. Heat the embossing powder with a heating tool until it melts.
Now comes the fun part take some ink and some blending tools and blend the colors onto the paper. For this card, I used Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, and ?. I started with the Seedless Preserves and used a blending brush to color the insite of the flower. Then I used the light blue to blend the rest of the flower. Finally the dark ink was used on the edges of the card. As you can see from the picture, I intentionally didn’t blend the dark color all the way because I wanted some light blue to shine through.
