Emboss resist tiles

 Fern tile card

I have two emboss resist cards for you today, one inspired by the Less is More colour challenge for this week Lime Green & Black. Both tiles were created by stamping the letter background first then the tile stamp in versamark next so it could be embossed with clear powder. I finished the tiles by sponging two tones over the panel and trimming back to an even rectangle. The tiles are popped up on dimensional tape.

A note about sentiment placement: These tiles really don’t take up much space on the cardbase so I tried to make a triangle when adding the sentiment, to lead the eye across the card. In order to work out the best position for the sentiment I stamped it on an acrylic sheet with a stamp positioner first so I could move it around and see the possibilities. When playing with the “feel better” stamp above it did not look good side by side with the tile but did work below. I think the eye is lead down by the gradation of colour and ending up on the sentiment. On the card below I was able to create my triangle but not as I expected to, by lining the sentiment up with the base of the tile but by  moving it up ever so slightly. All that to say it pays to work with a stamp positioner. There was a time I thought I wouldn’t ever use one but now I pull it out often.
