TECHNIQUE THURSDAY, Emboss Resist High Tea Thanks...

Today I have a monochromatic thank you card I did with Tea Shoppe stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It is one of my favorite sets from the Mini.  I am really hoping that it comes back in the new catty!  For this card, I used a simple Emboss Resist technique (tutorial at the end) for the Hello Doily stamp.  It is a perfect stamp for this technique.  After embossing the doily, I sponged Concord Crush over it, to highlight it.  Then I added the tea cup and teabag (the tag punch is awesome for this) and stamped the sentiment.  Enjoy!

For those who may be new to stamping and don't know the Emboss Resist Technique, here it is:

1.  Stamp your image with Versamark or Craft Ink onto card stock.  This technique works especially well on Glossy card stock.

2.  Emboss using White (with Versamark) or Clear (with Craft Inks) Embossing Powder and your Heat Tool. Allow to cool.

3.  Sponge or bray any color(s) classic ink around the embossed image.

4.  Buff off any remaining or excess ink from the embossed image with a paper towel or tissue.
