One thing I love about reverse images is the plethora of techniques that become available to use in conjunction with them.  One of my favorites is emboss resist. 

First I stamped french script onto my cardstock.  I then stamped my reverse fern image with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder.

I then sponged olive ink over the image, allowing it to feather softly around the edges.  I made sure to "polish" the embossed area when I was done, making sure the excess ink was wiped away. 

This is such a fun technique that can be done with any of the five reverse images in the Papertrey set that will be released on Thursday.  A few of you have asked if a special sized block will be needed.  The large reverse images in this set measure 1.25 x 3 inches, so check through your stash and see if you have a block large enough.  If not, the largest block included in Papertrey’s set of three will do just the trick.

Ink: Old Olive Dye ink from SU!, Versamark
Stamps: Papertrey, Script stamp from Hero Arts
Paper: confetti white from SU!, green from Bazzill
Other: Word Window punch from SU!, butto from DCWV, sewing maching
