After the interest and kind comments expressed yesterday about the bister & emboss resist combo I thought I’d show you another done with the same ingredients. I embossed the typewriter text stamp on hot pressed watercolour paper and created two different looks with two brands of paint powder. The blue one features blue bister, like yesterday’s card and the tones are muted and earthy. The pink card features Nuvo cherry bomb shimmer powder and the tones are bright and sparkly.
Once again the paint powders created a range of shades and pooled in different places trapped by the embossing. I thought it was particularly clever the way the letters trapped dark colour at times and white space at other times.
I cut the ‘friend’ die cut in blue card and black foam to make a stacked word then added the embossed sentiment strip underneath.
The pink card features the same steps but there is shimmer here and there over the panel. I also added sparkle to the die cut ‘friend’ by embossing the whole word with versamark and clear sparkle powder.
I doubt I will ever tire of playing with paint powders; the results are different every time!

Looks great with that stamp. I love the brown in blue one. Very cool.
What a great comparison betwwen the more muted tones of the blue Bister and the vibrant shimmery pink of the Nuvo using that fabulous script and the fun coordinating strip sentiment, and finished perfectly with the large die cut sentiment too Heather. Two gorgeous cards. x
Great comparison and amazing cads!
I love this stamp Heather and your post shows how amazingly different results can be obtained depending on the products used, when the stamp and dies remain the same. My personal preference is the Bister one.
