I am taking an amazing online card class called Inspiration Showcase. It's day two, and I have learned so much from Jennifer McGuire! The past couple of days, she has been demonstrating resist techniques, and I had an idea right away. I used the card sketch at Frosted Designs as a jumping point for this card (click on the link to find the sketch).
I wanted to not only use the emboss resist technique, but I wanted to make sure this card had a vintage and distressed feel for the Shopping Our Stash challenge. I used a bamboo cardstock base, and I stamped some weeds with Versamark. If you look closely (just click on the picture), I also have two small circles with weeds. I used white embossing powder mixed with a very teensy bit of prisma glitter. I tried something very different and sprinkled flecks of the embossing powder toward the bottom of the card. Not enough to be defined, but rather to look like splatters. After embossing, I sponged the front with goldrush ink and the edges with chocolate. Next time I will try more sprinkled flecks, but for my first try, I loved the look! This card front was attached to a clear scalloped card.It's always so much fun to try something new!!
