This week over at HSS we have a technique challenge – resist emboss. It looks complicated but it is very easy. My inspiration for my card this week came from Andy Warhol’s work, Flowers. I stamped the flower and cupcake images with Versamark on Whisper White CS then embossed the images with Stampin’ Emboss powder and set with SU heat tool. I then used the Scallop Square punch to punch the images then sponged the color. I used my Big Shot to texture the Melon Mambo background with the large dot Texturz Plate. I used SU dimensionals to adhere the squares to the Melon Mambo background. Next I adhered the Bermuda Bay background layer then adhered the Melon Mambo with the squares. Then added the silver brads to the corners. Very easy! SCS has a tutorial for the resist emboss technique here.
