Just Believe Emboss Resist

This card is pretty clean and simple, but the emboss resist technique just makes it POP!

I started by stamping the En Francais background stamp in Concord Crush. Then I embossed the flower with white embossing powder. I finished by sponging Bashful Blue ink over the embossed image (which resists the ink). I used a quarter of a round Stampin' Sponge and "burnished" the ink over the image. Use a small circle motion to rub the ink over the cardstock.

Supplies: Just Believe, En Francais, Concord Crush ink & cardstock, Bashful Blue ink & cardstock, Versamark ink, Whisper White cardstock, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Corner Rounder Punch, Concord Crush Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Wow! Really beautiful! I just completed a card using this set for the first time (will post today.) I love this technique, it's so much fun and this is an outstanding example. Love it!

Julie,
I loved this technique in your class and will be making some Spring cards soon - as soon as I clear my desk of all the Christmas clutter because I know there is a desk under there somewhere!

Beautiful card! I love that you explained how to do the technique - I too am going to try this. TFS.
