Emboss Resist with Crafty Power Tape

Hello! Kimberly here with a raging case of spring fever! Its time for bright colors and butterflies. The bright yellow mist that I have been playing with inspired me to try an interesting resist technique with Crafty Power Tape.

Start with a piece of white cardstock, cut to the desired size. Start applying Crafty Power Tape in a diagonal pattern, only going one direction to begin with. Remove the backing and repeat, going the other direction.

If you look closely, you can see the pattern created with the Crafty Power Tape. Once all the backings have been removed, apply clear embossing powder and heat set. The embossing powder will take slightly longer to melt on the tape, versus plain cardstock.

Then the real fun begins! Apply the color mist to the cardstock. Gently remove the excess mists with a paper towel.

One last tip for you. I find that cardstock really curls and bends when mists are applied. To keep the cardstock straight when adhered to the project, use pieces of Crafty Foam Tape across the back of the cardstock.

A close look at the embossed resist technique with Crafty Power Tape.

I hope this has inspired you to try different patterns on your next project! Imagine all the possibilities!
