Fabulous Friday with Kate - Distress Stains and Creating Your Own Resist Paper and Embellishments

Kate has sent along a great video this week......

Using stamps and embossing powder, she is creating embellishments like this:

1.  Stamp the image that you want to work with using Versamark or some other slow-drying ink.  Cover with your choice of embossing powders and heat until the powder 'sets' and your powder is melted on your paper.

2.  Using either a blending tool (tim holtz or inksentials foam pad holders) lift ink from your choice of distress ink pad and apply the ink to the area of your embossed image using a swirling motion.  Don't worry about your embossed image ....the ink will not stick to it.... 

3.  Cut out your image to use as an embellishment or repeat the process over multiple images to make a border or background.

See the video for details as well as more techniques using distress inks, craft mats, embossed images and more.
