Before I get to all of that though, here are my cards for this week's challenge over at Just Add Ink. This week we get to do some fun stuff, and try a technique we've never tried before. It may be hard to believe, but I have never tried the emboss resist technique before so figured it was time to give it a go! I also had a play with my distress inks, something else I hardly ever get out of the box.
I started by stamping my image and sentiment (from Clearly Besotted Stamps) in Versamark Ink onto white gloss card stock and then heat embossing with iridescent peacock embossing powder. It is so sparkly in real life, but I just couldn't capture it in the photos.
I then used a sponge and rubbed the cardstock with my distress inks before sprinkling it with water to get this beautiful effect. I used the same colours on both cards, yet they look very different! I love that you can get different looks depending on how much of each colour you use and how you blend it.
