Today I am sitting around with my foot propped up because I twisted my ankle in our driveway this past weekend. So I took the opportunity to participate in the Try A New Technique Challenge - TLC361 - over at Splitcoaststampers. I had to modify the technique because I don't have any embossing folders...so here is my card and the technique I used!
The technique is called Bisque Pottery Technique. You were to ink up the negative side of the embossing folder with a neutral ink and then emboss. Since I have no embossing folders I used my Spellbinders Impressabilities™ for this technique. I started with a base of Neenah Solar Crest White #110 for my base and Simply Smooth White for everything else. I inked up the Flower Silhouette Impressabilities using Versamark Embossing Ink and ran it thru my Grand Calibur using the embossing sandwich. Then I sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat set it. After it cooled, I cut/embossed the panel using Labels Seventeen die #5 and inked the whole thing using Antique Linen Distress Ink. The embossed parts resisted the ink leaving the cool look you see! Then I cut/embossed a frame using Lattice Rectangles #3 and Labels Seventeen #2. I inked all the edges on this frame, too. I printed out my sentiment on my computer and cut/embossed it using Ribbon Banners die template. As you can see, everything got inked really good - which is always fun!! Plus I added a seam binding ribbon to complete the card. Hopefully this does look like Bisque Pottery, if you don't think so I just hope you think its pretty!!
