Emboss Resist Card

I received this card as a swap from Linda Madsen.  It uses the emboss resist technique.  We haven't done that for awhile, so let's use this a reminder of how to do it.  There isn't a recipe on the back, so I'll do my best to tell you what the ingredients are and how she made this card.

Stamp Sets:  Elements of Style, Baroque Motifs, and Vintage Vogue

Card stock:  Confetti Cream, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, and  Regal Rose

Ink:  Versamark, Soft Suede, Regal Rose

Accessories:  Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Clear Embossing Powder, Stampin Sponges
In order to do Emboss Resist, you must first emboss the image using the Versamark pad and the clear embossing powder.  Then sponge on the Soft Suede ink.  The flowers are stamped on to Very Vanilla card stock and cut out.  They're attached to the card with a dimensional.  A rhinestone is placed in the middle.

The center section of the card is stamped with Soft Suede ink and stamped several times without reinking.

It's a very pretty card.  Thank you, Linda.
