Star Birthday Dry Emboss Resist Technique

Okay.  Starting on row 2 of the Techniques.  This one is dry embossing on glossy c/s and then using Tim Holtz Distress Ink to color it.  The instructions said to punch the images first and then emboss, but I found it easier just to emboss the c/s and then I added the colors to that and overlapped the colors somewhat which gave it a good effect.
I used the Paisley embossing folder and embossed a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch piece of SU White Glossy c/s.  After I embossed the c/s, I took a piece of light sandpaper and sanded the top of the c/s to remove most of the gloss off it.  I then used the Tim Holtz sponge applicator and applied Distress Inks around the paper with Broken China, Wild Honey, and Fried Brick.  Then I punch out the stars using the SU large and small Star Punches.  I cut a large circle of SU Chocolate Chip and stamped the sentiment from the SU Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set using Versamark and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then it was just a matter of placing the stars around the circle.  The base of the card is SU Confetti Cream.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful day!
