Emboss-Resist Flowers

Hello, everyone.  Today I played around with a technique I haven't used in ages:  emboss resist.

I started with a white card base and layered with an embossed white panel.  I embossed flowers in clear and sprayed with purple and green Smooch Spritz, die cut into a circle, and layered onto a white lacey circle.  I embellished with clear dew drops, white ribbon, and a white butterfly.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Flowers (The Artful Stamper)
  • Ink:  Versamark Watermark, Smooch Spritz (Frosted Grape, Emerald Sprinkle)
  • Embossing powder:  The Artful Stamper
  • Cardstock:  Domtar
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Textile
  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframes Circles, Spellbinders Lacey Circles
  • Butterfly punch:  EK Success
  • Accents:  Dew drops (Dollarama), ribbon (bought at thrift shop, unmarked)

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. Allways Something Creative Anything but Colourful 1E
  2. Crafty Ribbons #61 Pure Whiteness
  3. Created with Love Challenges #58 Anything Goes 3E #1 C10

This is just so pretty. Great embossing (both sorts) and love the colours on the topper. Those little dewdrops are perfect to finish it off. Great card.

I have to admit that while I like the other two you chose to enter into my WCDM celebration, this is my favourite of the three. Fit Kitty this card is just so stunning! That embellished background is gorgeous and the contrast of colours used for your centrepiece is wonderful. I love the technique you used even if I don't exactly understand it. I also love this card because of the balance that you achieved with your layout. I've discovered that I am really drawn to balance within card designs and yours is just splendid.

Thanks so much for taking the time to link up three of your favourites from the past year. I've really enjoyed checking them out. Good luck in the draw!
