steps to emboss resist with a stencil

  1. Secure a stencil over desired cardstock or prepared panel (may be however you like – plain, ink blended, or even patterned paper as a suggestion). If ink blended, or otherwise inked, using anti-static powder before applying the stencil will help in next steps.
  2. Using a foam blending tool, apply embossing ink over the stencil, inking as much or little of the stencil as desired.
  3. Apply embossing powder and heat.
  4. Apply additional layers of ink as desired over panel, allowing the embossed area to resist the inking – creating a unique look.
  5. Use a dry paper towel or cloth to wipe residual ink off the embossed areas.
