Easy Emboss Resist With Blending Brushes

Emboss resist is an easy stamping technique with gorgeous results, especially when paired with ink blending!

Julie has been having a ball with her Life-changing Brushes by Picket Fence Studios and today she’s doing an emboss resist with ink blending on top of a die cut with detail lines!  The end result is a cross between an ombré or rainbow effect with sun rays built in!

  • Use the tool(s) from your MISTI Creative Corners to line up your dies if you have trouble eyeballing.
  • Prep your paper surface prior to heat embossing with an anti-static pouch; you’ll have much cleaner embossing results.
  • Detail powders are perfect for more delicate sentiments and image lines.
  • Make your own chipboard embellishments by stacking layers of die cuts together.
  • Create “custom” paper colors with ink blending.
  • You can clean off your Life-changing Brushes by rubbing them against a baby wipe, and then against clean scratch paper; alternatively, you can run them under tap water and store them brush up/handle down in a jar or cup and allow them to air dry.  It’s always a good idea to clean off your brushes  before changing (high contrast) ink colors and/or before storing them.
