Emboss Resist and Split Negative Cards

Welcome to the Botanicals Card Kit blog hop. Tonight we are featuring the new Botanicals stamp set with a special technique themed blog hop event! I decided to do two techniques on my cards below: emboss resist and split negative. If you want to know how to do an emboss resist, watch Gina's videos HERE. For the split negative, the video tutorial is HERE.

For my first card, I stamped the botanical images randomly using Versamark ink on a 5.25" x 4" ivory cardstock panel. I cut it in half. I heat embossed half with white, the upper half with Cranberry powder. I then inked the panels with Distress inks. I mounted the two panels on Kraft cardstock.

This card is straight emboss resist using the Garnet ink for the text background and white embossing powder for the main image.
Please visit these designer's blogs for their project using a variety of techniques all made with the Botanicals stamp set:
