Embossing Resist with tutorial...my way!

As you may know, if you visit SCS, that this tutorial was created by the AWSOME Beate...but I thought I'd give it a try to add it to my MSN group...so here goes for you bloggers!

You'll Need:
Heat Gun
Versamark Ink (or any clear embossing pad)
Neutral CS
Stamps of choice
Clear embossing powder
Distressing Ink or Classic SU Ink (but any ink will work)
cotton balls or daubbers



cut your neutral CS to desired size, set aside, and ink up stamp with embossing pad












stamp image onto CS (here I used From The Garden by Fancy Pants)
































sprinkle clear embossing powder over image and shake off





































start heat embossing your image until glossy (becareful not to set your embossing gun to close to the paper or it may burn and yellow)






























ink your cotton or daubber with desired ink and begin inking (you can dab or swipe for different effects, here I used Antique Linen Distress Ink)

























here is what it looks like once you've complated the whole piece of CS (IRL, this looks and feels like "faux suede")

















with a clean cotton or daubber, smooth over "resist" to clean off any left over ink












here is the finished product...embellish as desired!
Supplies:
CS: BBlack & White NON SU CS
Ink: Versamark, BBlack, & Antique Linen Distress Ink
Stamps: From The Garden by Fancy Pants & Meet Me At The Cafe' by MFT
Embellishments: metal framed heart
Others: heat gun & clear embossing powder
