Brandi's Resist stamping technique
To achieve the look on my layout you will need clear embossing ink, clear embossing powder, ink in your choice of color(s), a heat gun, and of course your choice of stamps. I chose to use a white background because I wanted my “waves” to appear white.
Start by stamping your image with the clear ink and embossing with clear powder. Once you have the design you want completed, with a damp sponge, rub/dab ink over the embossed design. The embossing will “resist” the ink, leaving the white to show through. Blend your ink colors to achieve the look you desire. A similar look can be created with watercolors or walnut ink. This is a great technique to use when needing a certain patterned paper that you can’t locate.
