2 tags using the "Emboss Resist" technique!

Hello my Dear Friends:

Here Bibiana, ...Well today,  I would like to share with you this project that I did using the beautiful stamps from "Lost Coast Designs"...not one but 2 cards!!...well, actually 2 tags...

They are very different from each other,  using several stamps but using the same technique in both tags: The technique of "Emboss Resist"...

This "Arch door window" tag is more vibrant in the colors and more masculine looking...
I love the "Swirl" stamp and "The arch window" is perfect as well for the people who like to make ATC's, actually I think I should do an ATC using this Arch!  it is so beautiful!
Noticed in both tags the ends or "heads"?
I tried to make them different...

In this one I stamped the crown twice for the back and for the front of the tag.
They were stamped in a same piece of paper, "facing" each other or one on top of the other if you prefer,  and connected by the top jewel, so when I  did cut them by hand the only place that is connected and not cut is at this point; the jewel and from there I inserted the ribbon then tied with twine...

The second one is more romantic and monochromatic in shades of green. (old paper and Iced spruce distress inks)
I used 2 stamps, one background the "chicken wire" which I think is very versatile; and the "Roses"
Look at the end point as well,  I simply attached the ribbon with a staple and folded a label in half and placed it on the top of the tag...

Emboss Resist Technique:
1- ink with versamark the image and stamp it in a cream card stock, (in this case the arch tag #1 and the rose in tag #2)
2- pour clear embossing powder over it, and heat emboss with your heat gun, let it cool
3- sponge various colors on different sections,
4- wipe your embossed imaged with a baby wipe to buff ink off your embossed image  and that's it...this is the "emboss resit" technique...because the embossed image "resist" the sponged inks...!
in tag # 1, I double heat emboss, (clear: arch and swirls: in gold) stamped over with other images, to add more depth and placed some dots with a "Copic" marker  around the tag and VoilĂ !

If you liked this images, make sure to stop by "Loast Coast Designs" LCD web page,  remember they only sell through online and if you are lucky you can see them at the stamp shows around the country...

Hope you have a nice day and thanks for stopping by...until our next Rendez-vous!
