The Perfect Sentiment Challenge 15: Birthday Embossing Resist

Hello Everyone! It's Wednesday at that means it's time for another challenge at The Perfect Sentiment.

Our challenge this week is to create a birthday card (with sentiment on the front) using the embossing resist technique.

When Sami first suggested this technique for our challenge I have to admit I cringed. I haven't done embossing resist in years and if I could recall correctly I wasn't that great at it. But, that's why it's called a challenge, right? So, in the spirit of having fun I agreed and you're about to see my final results.




I created a card base using Wisteria Wonder CS. Then I cut out a layer of Very Vanilla CS and using the Bliss stamp set I stamped various images using the VersaMark watermark ink. I covered the stamped images in clear embossing powder and then embossed with my heat gun. Using Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade inks I sponged over the clear embossed images to make them pop. I was actually very pleased with this "homemade" patterned paper I had created and in the process of trying out an old technique I found a color combination that I really like. I added two strips of ribbon and for finishing touches I cut out a Spellbinders Grommet Tag and inked the edges of it after I stamped "birthday wishes" on it. So, all that cringing was for nothing!






Now, I can't wait for you to see what the team did with this technique:

Once you're inspired come play along at the Perfect Sentiment!

I would like to enter this card into the challenge at Flutter By Wednesdays: Challenge this week is OPEN just remember your butterfly, fairy or angel
