Hi crafty friends! Today I’m trying an emboss resist technique that I saw on Jennifer McGuire’s YouTube channel to make this gorgeous night sky.
I started out by stamping the Hero Arts Starry Night cling stamp with yellow Pinkfresh Studio inks onto a piece of Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock using my Misti. I then cleaned the stamp and stamped it again in Versamark ink so I could clear emboss the image to do an emboss resist technique. The clear embossing will show the color of the ink underneath but will resist any ink I put on top so I can then blend the night sky out with Concord and 9th inks.
For my focal point I stamped this hot air balloon image from the Sky High Friends stamp set by My Favorite Things in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Canson Montval 200 gsm watercolor cardstock and colored it in with my Karin Brushmarkers. I added details with a gold Posca Paint Marker and then fussy cut it out.
For my sentiment strip I colored a piece of cardstock with the same burgundy marker I used on the balloon and then heat embossed the sentiment on there in Gold Rich Pale embossing powder. To put it all together I layered scraps of cardstock behind the background panel and the sentiment strip to give them extra dimension and glued that all together with Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. I propped up the focal image with some foam squares. For a matching envelope idea, please watch the video below!
