I used 2 techniques for this class that are new; tearing and emboss resist. Tearing is ripping paper to reveal the white core and to give an uneven edge. I thought it added some snow-like qualities to my winter layout.
Emboss resist is when you emboss on white paper using white embossing powder and Versamark ink. Then using coloured ink and a sponge, rub the ink overtop of the paper to reveal the white embossed image.
