PTI Embossing Resist Challenge

Hello!! It is Friday, finally. It has been one heck of a week around here. It looks like we are suppose to get rain all weekend. Maybe some snow in the mountains and who knows we may get some flurries. We don't get snow very often so it is nice to see now and then.

Nichole Heady at Papertrey Ink is have a technique challenge. She wants you to do the embossing resist technique. She even has a video showing you how she did her card. I needed to make a Thank You card so I thought this would be a nice technique to use.

I started out with Aqua Mist CS and cut a portion of the front off and then used some vellum CS. For the panel I used Vintage Cream CS. The stamp is from With Sympathy. I first stamped it with VersaMark ink and embossed it with clear embossing Powder. I first used Lemon Tart ink and went over the whole image, then went over it again with Summer Sunrise and the final touch was Terracotta Tile ink. The butterflies are cut from Aqua Mist CS using a MS butterfly trio punch and glittered them with Prisma Glitter and randomly placed them on my design. The Top Notch Twill Ribbon is Terracotta Tile.

That is about it for me today,
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look.

This is great. I love the emboss resist tech but I am so not good at techniques that I don't even try most of them anymore. Great job!!!
