Newton's Nook Designs August Release ~ Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of Newton's Nook Designs' August Release.  Today Jen has created some beautiful silhouette sea life images for you to create with - introducing 'Tranquil Tides':


Isn't that little seahorse just precious?!!  I decided to use as many images as I could to create this fun emboss resist card using lots of embossing powder in tropical neon colors:

I didn't know if embossing medium works well with negative stamping to reverse images like ink does (have you tried it?  Please let me know about your success or lack thereof in the comments!) so I simply turned the little seahorse upside down to be in position to kiss his angel fish sweetheart.

I love your sweet card! I haven't tried reversing a stamp with embossing ink yet, but you could always try stamping the seahorse onto acetate and turning it over for a similar effect?

Thanks for showing this bright and fun card! I haven't tried to reverse an image yet. Your idea worked great! I thought of embossing on vellum and flipping it over to achieve what you wanted to do.
