It's December 1st and the new CAS Mix Up Challenge is posted! Loll is our hostess with the mostest this month and her challenge is Emboss Resist!
We also welcome Guest Designer: Bozena (ArtCardBox)
There are several links to emboss resist technique videos over on the challenge blog.
I used the Black Embossed Technique shown on this video:
Black Embossed Resist by Jennifer McGuire (9:08)
I had never seen this before and I love how it comes out!
I used Emboss Resist, stamping and layered die cuts.
I first stamped the holly leaves and berries in green and red inks onto a panel of white card. Then I stamped over the images with Versamark ink and clear embossed them. I colored over the panel with a black Tombow Marker, wiping the marker off the embossed images as I went along, until all the exposed white was black!
You can see the shimmer of the clear embossing in this photo (hopefully!)
I was so excited by the technique - I made a second card - this time stamping just 3 holly leaves and one set of berries - and I did the sentiment a little differently - fussy cutting around the top and placing it below the image.
and again a close up of the clear embossing
and a view of what I stamped inside both of my cards.
So please join us and show us how you will use Embossed Resist on your CAS card design!
Please note: The December challenge will run Dec. 1 - 15 (instead of to Dec 24), to provide two weeks off for the Design Team members during a busy time of year.
Winning post will go live Dec. 18th over at the challenge blog
You'll find some great emboss resist inspiration from the team as well as our December Guest Designer: Bozena (ArtCardBox), links to technique videos as well as Mr. Linky where you can link up your own CAS Emboss Resist cards at the CAS Mix Up Challenge Blog!
