Clear Embossed Resists

The above cards were made with a basic resist technique I learned years ago. I have been revisiting some older techniques these days. Th photos are probably in the wrong order, but we will work with it!
The top photo is the end result. The middle photo is of a "master board" that can be cut into smaller sizes for a variety of cards. I used a rainbow dye ink pad and a brayer to apply ink over the embossed image. You can use solid color ink pads as well.
Bottom photo is of the supplies used to emboss the flowers. Basically, stamp and clear emboss image all over glossy cardstock. When the cardstock cools a bit, ink up a brayer with dye ink and roll over the image. Once the sheet is covered with ink, take a paper towel and wipe off the embossed image.
The card layers, die cut tag, and ribbon are from Club Scrap's Birds of a Feather kit.
