One Love, One World Dark Ink Emboss Resist Cards

I have been playing with some new stamp sets as well as techniques that are on my list to try someday. I was inspired by some cards made with a technique called Black Resist Emboss over patterned paper here on this blog and made these cards using that technique and a new stamp set from Lil' Inker called One Love Stamps. I stamped the heart world from that stamp set on a striped designer paper with Versamark, dumped on clear embossing powder and melted that with my heat gun. Then I simply applied navy blue ink directly to the paper and wiped off the world heart. I stamped "Choose Love" and some hearts from the inspirational Lil' Inker set, and attached the completed card front onto a white card base.

The technique I found on line used black ink, so I tried it on a Christmas card with the same world heart embossed with clear embossing powder and some blue holiday wishes paper. I added the perfect Christmas sentiment die cut in  gold paper with a die from Penny Black. This technique is easy to do and creates a lovely resist look with any stamps and designer paper you choose to use. 

I am entering the second card in the challenge at Scrapy Land. and the first in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.
