Medallion Emboss Resist

I just love this card! It's really simple, but the color makes it pop! I was hoping to get some other photos taken of the how to, but I ran out of time. If you think you need to see it, leave a comment and I'll see what I can do!

Here's the card, inspired by Shelli's presentation at the Cincinnati Regional Seminar.

I started by clear embossing the Medallion image on Whisper White cardstock. Then, I stamped the Medallion image in color on a scrap piece of cardstock and cut it out. I kept the leftover piece of the cardstock that had the outline of the Medallion cut from it and used that as a mask. I placed it around the embossed image and then used sponge daubers to sponge three different colors all over the Medallion. I used Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry. The mask kept the line around the Medallion nice and clean and crisp. I used a cotton ball to gently rub off any excess ink off the embossed image. Viola. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

Supplies: Medallion, Upsy Daisy (greeting), Whisper White cardstock, Versamark ink, Crushed Curry ink & cardstock, Melon Mambo ink & cardstock, Rich Razzleberry ink, Sponge Daubers, Clear Embossing Powder, Ticket Corner Punch
