Emboss Resist with Splash Tutorial

Emboss resist with Splash is so super easy and the results are so AWESOME! Here is a tutorial to help you make your own splashed notecards!
First, stamp your image with Versamark. You want to use a solid image stamp. I used one of the solid modern zinnia stamps. Love that set! So, can you see that the image is lightly there on the vanilla cardstock? The versamark ink has some tackiness to it so the embossing powder will stick to it.
The next step is to pick your embossing powder and pour it over the stamped image. Be generous and really get it covered. Shake off the excess and pour it back into the bottle to use the next time. I'm using white embossing powder from A Muse Studio. 
So then you hit it with the heat gun and it melts. See the one on the right - it's melted and the others are still powdery. I love watching the powder melt - it's like magic!
Now they're all embossed and it's ready to spray!
After you spray it, wipe off the excess from the embossed flowers with a paper towel and let it dry for a bit. I used Pistachio splash for this one but you can use any color that you want. Scroll down to see other colors!
And, here's the finished project. :) I like to layer it on onyx and then back on a vanilla cardstock base. A group of these makes a wonderful gift of notecards. You can stamp inside but I generally leave this design blank.
 look at all these gorgeous colors! A Muse carries Splash is so many colors. You can dab, spritz or spray with it. You can even paint with it. Such a fun product!

So, here it is again - the cast of characters - versamark, Modern Zinnia solid stamp, white embossing powder and pistachio splash. Have fun playing!!

And, here's where you can pick up the supplies to make your very own embossed resist with Splash!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
