Morning, all!

When I sat down to create a card for you guys last night, I thought I’d try something that I haven’t done for a really long time. Now, you guys know that I’m not a “technique girl.” That is, I don’t usually gravitate to using inking or stamping techniques. However, when I first started out and for the brief time that I was a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator (it’s been 3 years since I was one), I really did like doing different techniques. Emboss Resist was one of the techniques that I really loved. Thought I’d break it out again. :)

I used a flower stamp from the To From Petals stamp set from Hero Arts. I used that particular stamp because it had a lot of negative space or space between the areas that stamped. All the little in between areas. I thought it would look cool with color “behind” it. :)

I used a sponge to transfer ink to the stamped flower, but I think sponge daubers or Ranger’s Ink Blending Tool would have worked even better.

Anyhow, enjoy!
