Hello friends,

Today I want to share a card I made using two of my favorite techniques. One of them is the emboss resist and the other one is the negative die cutting. This time I decided to use the Baroque Motifs Stamp Set from Altenew. This is a very ornate and detailed stamp set. You can achieve very interesting results using this stamp set and resist emboss technique.

altenew-baroque-motifs-alexsyberia-cardmakerTo make my card panel I started by stamping two baroque curls with Ranger Clear Embossing ink and clear embossed it. Then I inked the panel using Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I again stamped baroque curls with Ranger Clear Embossing ink and clear embossed it. I then ink blended a second time, this time with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Altenew Deep Iris Ink. This technique is like magic, every time it is very curious to see the end result. It will never disappoint! Yellow is very beautiful and looks spectacular against a blue or purple.

Between each stamping and ink blending routine, I applied my heat tool to ensure that all the ink was dry and used a Powder Tool Adhesive Deactivator as well so that the clear embossing powder would only stick to the next layer of stamped images.

I have a video about the emboss resist technique. You can watch it HERE.

altenew-baroque-motifs-alexsyberiaI love doing negative die cutting and using negative die cut panels on my cards. Since I only have a mini die cutting machine from Altenew, I can make small die cuttings only. LOL. This time I used Mega Love Die. I die cut the LOVE in my finished panel and adhered the negative panel onto a white card base. To finish off the card I stamped YOU from Mega Greetings 3 Stamp Set.

That Squeezed Lemonade really sets of the dark colors, Alex! I wonder what other color combinations would be so visually striking?! Just gorgeous!! ❤️❤️

Thank you, Sharon!
I love to use different color combinations. Unfortunately, I only have a small ink collection.LOL

To achieve the striking look we should use opposite colors. The color wheel can help you choose great color combinations.
Complementary colors are “opposite” colors. They are opposite of each other on the color wheel. Blue is the opposite of orange, red is the opposite of green etc..

For example, if we decided to choose green as our main color, we’d look across the color wheel for its complementary color, red. Then, look to the two colors directly beside it. Now, we have green, red-orange, and red-purple for a perfect split complementary color scheme:)

The main thing is not to be afraid of experimenting!
