Playing with Gesso

Last post, I used gesso in a resist technique. The above card was painted with gesso after I brayered rainbow dye ink over glossy white cardstock. I dry brushed the gesso on horizontally and vertically, lightly so as not to obscure the ink colors.

Once the gesso was dry, I embossed the panel in an embossing folder using my Big Shot. To bring out the pattern, I sanded some of the color off the raised portion of the pattern. Trim, matte and embellish!
