First stamp and heat emboss your image. Then use the embossing as a resist to color your background. You could sponge, watercolor, or use direct-to-paper technique, among others. Once the background is done, use scratch paper and a medium-heat iron to remove the melted embossing powder to leave a flat, mat finish.
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project with "Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist & Baked Brown Sugar".
- Create a project with the "Iron-Off Embossing Technique". Link to technique HERE.
- or Mash it Up! and create a "Project using the colors above & the Iron-Off Embossing Technique".
I also have a bonus iron-off embossing card, playing along with Mix-Ability challenge #67, Take It Away.
