Hello Honey Bee fans! Leanne here and I have a card to share that features an ink blended background using the emboss resist technique. This technique is nothing new but it never gets old and the results are always fabulous. The large mandala image from Here For You is perfect for the emboss resist technique.
I started by stamping and heat embossing the mandala image with white embossing powder directly onto an A2 size card panel. I used a trio of Distress Oxide Ink for the ink blending – Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. I then splattered the panel with thinned white and pink paint.
I wanted to add a bold greeting to layer directly over my ink blended background. I used the Grateful stamp set and coordinating Grateful Honey Cuts to build the custom greeting. I also added two butterfly images from Fluttering By which have been heat embossed with a beautiful yellow WOW embossing powder called Bee Sweet (from the exclusive Bee’s Knees Trio set). The butterflies, sentiment strips, and die cut greeting have all been adhered with dimensional foam squares.
I applied Glossy Accents over the die cut word “grateful” to give it a nice shine just like all the embossed elements on this card. Lastly as an extra bit of embellishment, I added a few sequins from the Mandala Mix.
