Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #29 - A Technique Challenge

The challenge this fortnight over on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges is to use the emboss resist technique with a side twist of using at least one punch. The emboss resist technique is so quick and simple to do - stamp an image/background/whatever using Versamark and emboss with either clear or white embossing powder. Ink over the image using a brayer, dauber or a sponge and wipe off any excess from your image and it will show through the colour. Instant design! And ideal to use if you want a certain colour background paper and haven't got one too!

Here's my offering using this week's colour challenge on SCS, CC274 to use Tempting Turquoise, Ruby Red and Cameo Coral, Papertake Weekly's Challenge #42 for the sketch and Sir Stampalot's June Challenge, Punch It.


Stamps: Hello Again, Bella's Bloom

Papers: Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Mellow Moss

Inks: Cameo Coral, Versamark, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories: Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Extra Large Bird Punch
