Emboss resist is a really cool technique which, I thought, looked fab using Close as a Memory. Fortunately, I don’t have anyone to give this card to yet. I made it for a technique workshop the other night.
I stamped the flowers in Versamark, then embossed it with white embossing powder. After that, I sponged Kiwi Kiss ink over the image … and then polished it off with a tissue. Using my double-rectangle punch, I added the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon which coordinates with the Kiwi Kiss paper I’ve used.
Do you find you are sometimes stuck for an idea? I often will look for something to inspire me to create a card and then I make it my own. But this card from pages 7 and 157 from the Idea Book & Catalogue was too elegant to alter … I had to recreate it!
Except, I made one obvious alteration. If you can tell me what I have changed, then post a comment on this page letting me know. I’ll post this card to either the person who is correct or, if there is more than one correct answer, I’ll draw your name out of a hat. Anyone is welcome to participate, including my clever team! You have until Friday 9.00pm!
