Resist Embossing Technique

Gently Falling Sympathy Card
I embossed the images in Clear, inked Stampin Sponges by tapping on Classic ink pads, and gently rubbed in circles over the embossed leaves.  I then carefully wiped the ink off the images (leaves) with a tissue.  The embossed image will "resist" being coloured by the ink, leaving it to pop out from a background of colour!
I sponged in Old Olive, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze ink - all in moderation!

Supplies: Gently Falling & Closed as Memory (retired) stamp sets; 
Soft Suede & Whisper White cardstock
Old Olive, Soft Suede & Cajun Craze Classic ink, VersaMark
Stampin Sponges, Clear emboss powder, heat tool
