Here is my badge from Day Two of My Favorite Things Summer Camp.

The challenge was to create a resist background using embossing ink.  I stamped the MFT Pin Stripes background stamp on water color paper using white embossing powder.  Since I just received my Distress Oxide Inks, I decided to give them a try.  So much fun. I dropped the ink, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio in by mixing it with water and drying in between the layers. My first attempt had been to use the Cheesecloth background stamp, but the pattern was too fine.  But we never throw anything away, so I ended up cutting the tie from that paper using MFT Suit and Tie die.   
I blended those same two inks on a strip of paper to cut out the letters using the MFT Emmit Alphabet. Very versatile alphabet set since they are narrow and tall and fit just about anywhere. These oxide inks blend so easily!  I then stamped Happy Birthday from the MFT Stay Tuned stamp set in the Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink to match the tie.

I have done this method many times and I always like the outcome.  I like the shine from the embossing in contrast with the inking.

Thank you for visiting.
