Embossing Powder Techniques #6

Fossil Resist

 After heat embossing an image you can apply techniques to the paper, but the embossed images will resist and stay the same.

For the Fossil Technique, start with card stock that has a hard surface and heat emboss images. I stamped snowflakes with VersaMark on Glossy White card stock and used Silver EP for this sample. You could also try Stampin' Up! Shimmery White, Brushed Gold and Brushed Silver card stock.

Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and add some drops of re-inker. Now, dab the mixture onto the card stock and over the images. Let dry and wipe the embossed images with a tissue to remove the ink mixture.
