How to RAINBOW Emboss Resist 2 Ways + Video!

Have you ever tried Emboss Resist? It’s so easy to do and such a fun technique that I just had to share 2 ideas!

But first… Did you know that this video is part of my Take 2 With Therese series of videos that I create for Altenew? You can check out the full playlist right HERE for more inspiration.

For both card designs I started out with a Pure White heat embossed Climbing Leaves Background. This embossed pattern will ‘Resist’ the mediums that I add which will, in turn, create the background patterns. And for a little extra FUN I wanted my cards to be rainbows today!

My first idea was to ink blend the rainbow using 3 Crisp Dye Inks. Using a Red, a Yellow and a Blue will give you a blended colour inbetween of Orange and Green!

I then used the coordinating Climbing Leaves die, which is my favourite part of this background stamp!

And I added a Mega Hello die cut with a sub-sentiment from the Bold Sentiments Stamp Set.

My second idea was to create the rainbow Emboss Resist background using the Artists Watercolors.

I did emboss this on Watercolor Paper Pad cardstock, to allow for the ‘extra water’ for the colours to mix.

And this time I thought it would be fun to add a frame and a Poised Flamingo, because, why not lol.

  1. Beautiful, Therese. I especially like the first card. I love it so much I am going to use that method today. After my recipient gets the card I will post a picture and tag you! (I haven’t taken much time lately for posting but I do look at your posts and enjoy them – and I do make a card every single day).

    1. How wonderful Lynn, so happy to hear that you make a card everyday, that is wonderful! I would love to see what you create when you get a chance, Crafty hugs Tx

  2. Therese, this background is close to the top of my wish list at the moment! You are so beautifully nudging it there!
    Why not, indeed! Fabulous!
