Splitcoast Tutorial: Smoosh Resist

 This week's tutorial is a blend of the smooshing technique and emboss resist - you can find it here!

I can't ever seem to follow directions, so I went on a fun tangent that I'll turn into a tutorial soon! Instead of embossing a stamped image, I squooshed Versamark ink through this brand new stencil from A Colorful Life (remember to use code DinaFan10 to save 10% when you shop there!). When I inked, I was careful to cover the whole stencil surface, so I could make a second background - that one is on my second card!

I had watercolored my panel first in a sort of rose gold, because I didn't want white paw prints on my background. I used clear detail powder for the embossing, then a variety of dye inks for the 'smooshing'. 

These adorable doggos are from an adorable set from The Cat's Pajamas called Whee! Such a fun one. 

Here's the inked up stencil - what I did next was to press it onto another cardstock panel by running it through my die cutting machine with an embossing pad (for the sandwich, I laid down the embossing mat, my cardstock, and then the stencil with the inked side down). I covered that panel with embossing powder and heated, then used the same inks in the open spaces! I ended up with a perfect reverse of my first panel.

I used Copic markers to color my dogs in, and the other stamping is done with Versafine Clair ink. 

I finished up my Fall/Winter stamp designs this weekend! It always feels good to pull a new release together - you'll see those stamps in July! Next on my ongoing to-do list - commissions and catalog samples for summer!

I added a few new things to my etsy store - a few wrap bracelets, some new earrings, and this bangle style bracelet in a stamper theme! I have a wholesale charm order in - when that comes I'll be able to add the rubber stamp and 'create' charms to my store too. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by!
