Secret Garden Emboss Resist Technique

Sometimes the most beautiful technique ends up being one of the easiest to do! I used Stampin' Up!'s Secret Garden stamp set and matching framelits (LOVE matching framelits) to demonstrate this technique. For this technique, you will need:
-Whisper White card stock
-white embossing powder
-Versamark pad
-ink pad (I used Pink Pirouette)
-heat tool
-a dauber or sponge
-a rubber stamp (I used Secret Garden)
-a tissue

 How to emboss resist:
-stamp your image with versamark onto Whisper White card stock
-pour on the white embossing powder
-shake off the excess
-heat with the heat tool (you will notice the powder melting)
-using the dauber or sponge, apply ink to the embossed image. Start in the middle and work your way out to create more depth.
-using the tissue, wipe off the excess ink

Here is my finished card:
