Heat emboss resist

I made a card today for Thanksgiving and my friend AnnaMarie asked how I did it. So I felt another tutorial popping in my head. And here it is!

This is what I used:
a card blank, a topper, a stamp, embossing ink and clear embossing powder, a die cut sentiment and the Wink of Stella clear brush. Oh and stamping ink.

I stamped the image on the card topper with embossing ink and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.
After heatsetting the embossing powder I started covering the topper with a darker colour distress ink using my blending tool... The darker you ink the more the stamped image pops.

I covered the whole topper and inked the edges even darker to frame it.
To make it all tie together, I stamped the same image with the same distress ink on the card blank.
Again I inked the edges to frame it. 

I cut a sentiment with a Quietfire Design die that I just love!
I add some sparkle with a clear wink of stella brush. It makes the sentiment stand out more.

And this is the finished card after I glued it all together. 

Now you can give it a go yourself. I love this technique.

Thank you for stopping by and until next time.

Take care,
