how to make easy emboss resist cards with reverse confetti

One of my favorite stamping techniques is emboss resist, where you emboss over a lighter color and then layer a darker color on top. It's easy and I think the results are always fun!
Embossing the image lets you create beautiful layers of color because the embossed image will resist the ink you add on top. 
For these cards, I created a simple border with the emboss resist technique.

I started by masking off a border with low-tack purple tape. Then I applied two colors of Distress Oxide ink (to get the perfect green) with a blending brush.
When the ink was completely dry (because I don't want the embossing powder to stick to everything), I stamped the some cacti in clear embossing ink and embossed with clear powder.

Then I layered a darker Distress Oxide ink on top with a blending brush.
I used a clean paper towel to remove the excess ink from the embossed images and then pulled the tape away to reveal my border.

I love the clean & simple look and it pairs well with the fantastic sentiments from the Best Sentiments stamp set! I am going to use those sentiment stamps sooooo much!
