I wanted to share with you a technique that gives great results.

It's an embossing resist with acrylic paints.  First paint card stock with Adirondack Lights acrylic Pain Dabber "Sandal" and let it dry completely.

 Next stamp Scroll Work (SE133G), Distressed Lattice (SE505G) and one of the edges from Textured Edges quartet (SE426G) using Embossing Ink from Ranger.  Sprinkle Tsukineko clear embossing powder over clear stamping, tap off extra powder and heat with an embossing tool to melt powder.  Let this sit for a few moments and cool.

 Now paint over the whole surface with your dabber in cranberry.  Let this sit for a couple of moments and start to adhere and dry (but not completely).  Now your going to remove the paint that is over the clear embossing with a baby wipe.  If its still to wet the baby wipe may remove more then you want.  Just wipe it all off and reapply paint.

 The results are so dramatic and layered.  To give another layer of stamping and add color you can stamp over the dried paint ( I used Spread Your Wings TD025F and Ranger Archival Ink in black).

We hope you have fun with this quick technique.  Beverly
