Out of the Dark ~ A Version of Emboss Resist Tutorial
Reverse Emboss Resist - by Spike. Sponge distress inks onto white cardstock. Let dry. Stamp with VersaMark and emboss in clear. (He used UTEE - Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.) Sponge black Distress Ink all over the piece. Buff to remove the ink from the stamped design. Use as a background for a card.
Good idea with the embossing folder. This was made for her manfriend. Must have a bit more of a look into the technique she referred to as Negative Effect (if I understood the blog correctly, she inked up the embossing folder before running it through her Cuttlebug?).
