Emboss Resist

Just Us Girls has a wild card challenge this week to use the emboss resist technique   http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/04/jugs-82-wild-card.html

First I stamped the burlap type stamp from Gina K's Timeless Treasures with Antique Linen, then stamped the flower from Gina K's Lean on Me in Versamark and embossed with clear ep.  Next I used Vintage Photo ink and sponged it over the entire piece, then wiping with a soft cloth to remove the ink from the embossed flower.  I layered it onto a piece of Ivory cardstock by Gina K.  Cut a larger piece to mat the layered flower onto and Versamarked the edges and embossed with Distress ep in Vintage Photo.  Inked up the CB folder with Antique Linen and embossed a piece of Ivory cs, I believe this is called the letterpress technique.  Layered it all onto an Ivory card base, Gina K 120 lb - great stuff!  Stamped the sentiment from Gina K's Labeled With Love in Walnut Stain.
Inks used - Distress inks by Tim Holtz

Thanks for stopping by!
