Technique Tuesday: Reverse Masking, Embossing with Classic Ink

Today I'm sharing a couple projects we made at our Technique Class. For a basic technique, trying Reverse Masking. This is a great way to add depth or illusion of an addition layer, perfect for a Clean & Simple card.

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Warmest Regards; Paper: Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla; Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip marker; Accessories: Acetate template, Sponge.

And for an intermediate technique, do you know the trick for Embossing with Classic Ink? Classic ink dries quickly, unlike Craft ink, making it a good choice for quick and mess-free stamping, but not so good for embossing. In order to emboss with all your favorite Classic ink colors, ink up your image first in Versamark, then immediately in the Classic ink, then stamp. Cover the image with clear embossing powder. Important - make sure you clean your stamp before repeating to avoid dirtying your Versamark pad.

Stamps: Wonderful You, Warmest Regards; Paper: Always Artichoke, River Rock, Whisper White, Vellum cardstock; Ink: Always Artichoke, River Rock, Basic Black Versamark; Accessories: River Rock ribbon, Metal clip, Clear embossing powder, Paper piercer, Cutter Kit, Glue dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
