Emboss Resist

The challenge this week at JUGS is a technique challenge - Emboss Resist:

I started by stamping the leaves with Versamark onto white cardstock and heat embossed with copper ep.  Then I took some TH Distress Stains in Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Barn Door and Vintage Photo swiping them across the embossed piece overlapping the colors.  Then I buffed off the embossed leaves with a tissue.  Sprayed the sentiment label with Tattered Angels gold, then added Versamark around the edges and heat embossed wth TH Distress ep in Tea Dye, stamped the sentiment and added the copper brads.  The ribbon had white stitching so I rubbed it with Wild Honey Distress Stain.  Matted onto a layer that was also heat embossed with the same Distress ep and layered onto a brown base.
Thanks for visiting!
