10 Minute Emboss Resist

We all know that stamping on colored papers with dye ink is seldom a successful endeavor. The images always come out looking dull and colorless. One of the things I love about the emboss resist technique is that it allows your stamped images to "look like" they were stamped on brightly colored paper when they were actually stamped on white card stock.

Today's 10 minute cards all started out the same way. I stamped my layered images on white card stock and then stamped layer one of the image with Versamark over the finished image. After sprinkling that with clear embossing powder, I  heat embossed it. Next came a sentiment stamped in Versamark and clear embossed as well. Now came the fun part. I picked a brightly colored ink and sponged the heck out of it over the entire surface. I rubbed over the images with a tissue to pick up any stray ink. You can see the results below.
