Second post for the day..... I know...SHOCKER!!!
Well I had to play along with this challenge. I haven't used the emboss resist technique for awhile so this was good to dust off the ole' heat gun:)
This is what I came up with........
This card turned out a little brighter than I expected...
I stamped the text background in smokey shadow on vintage cream card stock. I then stamped the damask image in versa mark and used clear embossing powder. I inked over it with hibiscus ink. I stamped the leaves from turning a new leaf in new leaf, cut out and clear embossed to give it shine. The sentiment is from the through the trees set. The ribbon is the new silk ribbon from papertrey... I just colored over it with one of my copic markers to best match the color of the hibiscus. The punch is everfervance (not sure if I spelled that right!!) from fiskars. The butterflies are Martha's!
Go on over to Nichole's blog to check out the challenge.
Have a great day!
