Golden Masking 2 Ways

Here are the projects I made on my Facebook Live video this week.  You can catch the replay on Facebook or YouTube.

Earlier this week I watched a video by Barry, who is half of Mitosu Crafts, a pair of English guys who are SU! demonstrators.  It was a demonstration of using Versamark with the decorative masks (stencils) and then heat embossing them.  While I was watching I wondered about also trying it with the new Delicata metallic inks.  So I decided to try them side-by-side in my FB Live.

​Here are the resulting cards:

These 2 are heat embossed.  The one on the right had the Versamark daubed on directly from the ink pad through the mask, then covered in embossing powder and heat set.  This is the “positive” image from the mask.  The one on the left is the “negative” image, made by pressing the Versamark-covered mask onto the cardstock by running them through the Big Shot, then heat embossing. Unfortunately the mask shifted during this process and the images is blurred, but I still think it’s a nice effect.
Positive image (yes, I went back afterwards and got those un-melted spots of EP!)
Negative image.
And these 2 are the Delicata Gold Glitz ink.  The one on the right is the positive image panel I made by sponging the ink over the mask after the video was finished, the left is the negative image made by running the well-inked mask through the Big Shot on some cardstock.
I found that daubing with the sponge worked well.  If you watched the video you saw that I got a blotchy, goopy mess when I tried to press the pad to the cardstock the way I did with the Versamark (L).  You can see the contrast in the pic on the right.
