Emboss Resist

My card today in an emboss resist using a stencil, clear embossing and alcohol inks on watercolour paper.

Here is the card:

The stencil is a woodgrain which I inked with versa mark and heat embossed. I then used alcohol ink which soaks into the paper creating rather a lovely subtle effect. I also used bronze mixative that gives it a shine and isn't resisted by the embossing in the same way. The card is finished with a bronze strip of metal effects card and a diecut sentiment.

Here is a close up:

I am sharing it at Just add ink #460 emboss resist.

I also made another card with a left over piece so I thought I would include it in this post:

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
