Hello Artsy Friends! Did you join in our Facebook live demo last Thursday evening? I’m usually live every Thursday night at 8 PM EDT. Last week I shared tips and tricks for creating dramatic backgrounds using the emboss resist technique.
I created a card using this technique with Colorado Craft Company’s Majestic Moth dragonfly on a slimline card, Catherine Pooler inks, and my new Zig Twin Tip Art Markers. You can see the YouTube video below:
Please be sure to give it a thumbs up, and subscribe to receive notifications for future videos!
The final embossed layer of gold takes the entire background over the top!
Can you find the different layers of embossing, and how blending ink darker and darker adds drama and interest?
I’ve been tearing vellum instead of cutting it lately. I love the organic, deckle edge it creates.
What do you think? I am obsessed with this embossing technique right now. Thank you so much for watching my video today. Love and artsy hugs!
