Resist Ink Blending Over Embossed Stamping (Altenew 4th Anniversary Blog Hop)

Hello there! Today’s blog post is part of a blog hop celebrating Altenew’s 4th Anniversary! I’m so honored and happy to be playing along. :)

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I chose to use one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets called Halftone Stars. I created a card using this stamp set a while back and have been wanting to create with it again. I stamped the stars in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I ink blended three colors of Versafine Clair pigment ink over the top of the embossing: Charming Pink, Monarch, and Blue Belle. The slick surface of the embossed stars resisted the pigment ink leaving the star shapes behind.

I finished off the card by stamping the “Eat, Sleep, Craft, Repeat” greeting from Altenew’s Crafty Life stamp set. I also added some white dimensional dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Simply White.
