Funky Forest Resist

On Friday I shared my DT card for this week's Just Add Ink Challenge for Helping Hudson, Just Add Wheels.  In my post, I mentioned that I'd originally been trying for a very different card, so today I'm sharing that card!  It's not exactly what I was hoping it would look like, but the effect is still pretty cool and really easy to do...
Like it?  This is how I did it:
  • I applied Versamark to my Funky Forest wheel
  • Wheeled it over some Urban Garden DSP
  • Applied clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool
  • I used my brayer to cover the design with Basic Black ink (you need a few layers)
  • Then I buffed the clear embossing with a tissue to remove the excess ink

TIP - make sure your Versamark pad is nice and juicy.  If it's not, you won't get enough embossing powder to stick to the image, and that means that more of the ink will get into the paper... right where your design should be!



You might remember seeing this technique on two cards I've done.  Check them out here and here.  It's a really effective technique!

Stamp sets - Funky Forest Wheel, Sanded
Cardstock - Basic Black, Kraft, Urban Garden DSP
Inks - Versamark, Basic Black
Accessories - Clear embossing powder, heat tool, Brayer




  1. I love this card, Danielle. I must try emboss resist on DSP again! This looks awesome with the cute little trees.

  2. This is a great look. I don't use my wheels enough. I'll have to try this. Thanks for the directions.

  3. Nothing better on a Sunday morning than a hot cuppa and some Danielle Daws eye candy. *wink* I love your style, girlie.

  4. Beautiful card Dannielle. I second your comment about having a juicy versamark pad :) I have just ordered my refill for this technique... and some other embossing ones! Claire

  5. This is just so cool! I love those colours! I'm so going to try it!

  6. What a beautiful card. It never occured to me to emboss resist on DSP, great idea!

  7. Wow!!! Brilliant! You could enter this (with a bit of sponging) in the Helping Hudson technique challenge this week :)

  8. I totally love this card Danielle and what a fab technique!!

  9. I love this, Danielle! I've just sent the link to all on SUDSOL, as we've been talking about wheels, and they wanted some WOW projects using them. This sure is a WOW - thanks for sharing the idea, it's so effective.

  10. I really love this Danielle. Very nice card!

  11. This looks fantastic Danielle!! It gives me so many more ideas using my wheels! TFS :)

  12. This is a fabulous card, and has inspired me to try emboss resist on DP.
