Going Dotty!


It’s Scrapblock release day and I’m so excited. I always love release days and today I have another idea to share with you using the Distressed Circles Scrapblock. Tuesday I showed how you can ink it with multiple inks for a patterned paper look and Wednesday, it was beautiful simply stamped onto Kraft Cardstock. Today’s project using a little more involved stamping technique but one that is still easy and fun to try. Some embossing and some Glimmer Mist make a great combination.
All I Am


Here’s how I did my Emboss Resist Backgound…

  1. If desired, stamp white cardstock with a stamp or backgrounder in a non-running ink. Anything you would watercolor with such as Stazon or a hybrid Palette Ink. I used the Spanish Script Backgrounder.
  2.  Ink your Scrapblock with Versamark Ink or an embossing ink and stamp cardstock over top of previous stamping. Emboss with clear embossing powder.
  3. Spray design with Glimmer Mist in two colors for a subtle variation of color. Carefully white embossing with tissue to remove excess ink and reveal the resist.

I almost hated to cover up this background as it is so pretty! The camera just does not pick up the shimmer. I added a few pretties et voila…c’est fini.

Have a beautiful day!
