Elements of Style Emboss Resist
My photography is not the best so I apologise.
This sample used the gorgeous Elements of Style set (p113 #121504)
First I embossed the floral image with white embossing powder (p159 #109132) and coloured the images using the Stampin' Write Markers. I used Certainly Celery and Pink Pirouette. Then to protect them from the background stamp marring the colours and also to add a bit more detail, I covered the coloured images with Crystal Effects (p177, #101155). I love this stuff! I left it to dry for quite a while till it was set. Then I stamped over the whole image with the Woodgrain Background Stamp using Early Espresso, and cleaned the residual ink off the embossed and coloured image. The Hummingbird I embossed with the Early Espresso Embossing Powder (Summer Mini p35 #128980) as, well as the sentiment. which I coloured with the Pink Marker when it was dry.
The layers then are the early Espresso Cordinations cardstock, certainly Celery Cardstock whichI embossed, then Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon which is retired, the Striped Organdy Ribbon in Old Olive from the new summer mini (p30 #129291) -which is fabulous- and finished it all with an Antique Brad (p174, #117273) - another regular feature of my work.
I did take inspiration for this card from one I found on Pinterest which was only white embossed but I am really sorry I can't find it again - despite mey best efforts at organising my photos, so i apologise to the original crafter and I would like to thank them. I hope you like my version.
Thanks for looking Liz
