Are you all ready to play along in this weeks OCC Challenge??? Today Jennifer asked us to use the *Emboss Resist* technique!!! I haven't done this in a while, but I was excited to try it again!!!
My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used Kraft, Bashful Blue and Whisper White CS. As well as the Glossy CS for my image.
I started out by inking the *Upsy Daisy* image in Versamark. Then I embossed the flowers with the retired Maze EP from the Earth Powder Stack. Next I inked the *moon* with the smaller dot from the *Dots Are Hot* Set in Versamark and embossed it with White EP. My next step was to sponge the background....I used Bashful Blue, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango Ink for it. I was actually trying to create a pretty afternoon sunset.....I'm not sure if I succeeded, but I kinda like how it turned out!!! What do you think???
After I was done with the image I started embossing the Bashful Blue CS with the *Mesh* Cuddlebug folder. Below I layered the Kraft CS. Next I raised the image with Stampin Dimensionals and started piercing on the right hand side. Something was missing.... so I added the Silver Brads. At last I inked the sentiment from the H&M Set *A Time of Caring* in Basic Black.
Please swing by Amy Sheffer, Cindy Haffner, Dawn Easton, Denise Marzec, Jennifer Meyer, Julee Tilman, Laurie Schmidlin, Lynda Benden, Jackie Pedro and Kim Teasdale's blog to see their version of the technique!!! ~TFL~
