Just Add Ink #460..."Emboss Resist"


Welcome to a new challenge week at Just Add Ink!

Lou has suggested the fun technique of Emboss Resist for us all to use as the Main Focus of our projects this week. Emboss resist is where you trap white or colour under a heat embossed outline or image and then apply ink over the top. The ink won't go (or resists) where there is embossing.

This is a great technique for backgrounds or focal images alike. Our design team had a real fun time with this challenge and that shows in our projects and we look forward to seeing what you will created for your version of this popular technique!

Just Add Ink #458...Just Add "Q-X-Y-Z"



Happy Friday everyone ~

Welcome to a new challenge week at Just Add Ink!

Tina has given us a few 'Just Add letters' to work with. Now you only have to choose ONE letter! If you work a few letters in then that's a bonus! And very clever.

So your project could use a stamp set starting with your chosen letter, or a special card fold, perhaps your sentiment starts with the letter you're using, or your card theme.....you are only limited by your imagination. Go forth & get busy. We look forward to seeing our gallery fill up with your amazing creations over the course of the week.
