Default Stamping over an embossed surface

I've been doing Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry. In one lesson, we covered a card with Distress ink and clear embossed the whole thing. Then we rubbed a brown (pick your shade) over the whole thing and the brown went into the cracks, etc., for a wonderful rusted enamel look. My question is: what ink do I use to stamp on top of the embossed surface? What would not smear?

The embossing turns it into a non-porous surface so Stazon would be a good choice. If you don't like the clean-up that Stazon involves and it's on a piece that won't get too much handling then Brilliance would also work - it takes longer to dry and it will scratch off if you try but on a project that won't get handled it should be fine.

Don't forget that those lumps, bumps and cracks that mean you got an interesting look from the initial technique also mean you haven't got a perfectly smooth surface for stamping so avoid images with superfine detail and don't expect a "perfect" image.

Have fun!

You could also iron the embossing off after you are done with the resist technique. Layer the panel between layers of cardstock and press up and down with an iron. A few things to remember:

be sure there are plenty of layers of paper under and over the piece to prevent the melted embossing from getting on your iron or surface


you will probably need to change paper layers to new/clean several times


an up and down motion instead of standard back and forth motion will help keep melted EP from smearing


the iron needs to be hot but not soo hot as to burn the paper

an iron with no holes is best but can be done with regular one as long as you change the placement of the iron to ensure getting all the embossing off

I agree with Joann, and I'd also add Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks and Tsukineko Memento Luxe inks to the list - those are both great with mixed media work, and a little faster drying than the Brilliance... Just be careful not to overheat your embossing if you heat set the inks so you don't lose the clarity of your stamping.

I'm asking (not suggesting) -- what about Palette ink or Archival ink? Anyone know? TIA! xoxo

If you are adding the embossing powder all over, why not stamp your image/sentiment before embossing?
Just an idea.

Isn't this basically the "cracked glass technique"? I've usually seen this with writing, images, etc. underneath the EP.

The difference is that in this technique you flick and rub off areas of the embossing powder before you emboss so that it is uneven coverage which you then cover with the brown ink. In my experience, cracked glass is usually evenly and heavily covered with embossing powder. HTH.

"Cracked Glass Technique":
1. I use UTEE
2. Stamp and then smoosh embossing fluid all over stamped image
3. Pour on UTEE /or clear embossing powder
4. Heat set
Pour UTEE/or clear embossing powder over
5. Heat set
Pour UTEE/or clear embossing powder over
Cool
6. Bend embossed image all over till it cracks, then rub whatever ink, rub-n-buff, shoe polish or what ever all over the cracks. You will be able to see the cracks- Distressed Cracks 'cause of the ink, polish, or whatever you used to go over the Cracks with to get "Distressed Cracked Look"
