Emboss Resist

Today is the last day to post our creation on the Dukes Design Divas site for the Hazard County Challenge.

Now, if I have to be honest,  I totally meant to make an awesome new card but was busy making cards for some upcoming events/ classes and ran out of time.  It wasn't until I was tidying up that I saw a card I made a long time ago and it sparked my memory for the challenge.  So although I did not make this card recently, it still falls under the challenge of an emboss resist card.

The base is So Saffron and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Black from the Sincere Salutations set. 

My images are stamped in Versamark ink on Glossy White cardstock using the retired set In Full Bloom.  I applied Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.  Next, I inked up my brayer with So Saffron ink and brayered over my glossy cardstock.  I let it sit to 'dry' for a bit and then wiped it with a paper towel to clean up the embossed images. I layered this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and before attaching to my cardfront, I added some Whisper White Organdy ribbon. (wow that gives away how old this card is- LOL)

Emboss resist can be so easy with great results.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
