Make It Monday #9 – Emboss Resist

Make It Monday #9 – Emboss Resist

Welcome to this weeks Make It Monday tutorial.  I’m super excited to share with you another clean & simple one layer design.  This time I’ve added interest by using an emboss resist technique and sponging.

I started by stamping my greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, in Black Ink centered at the bottom of my Whisper White piece of cardstock.  I stamped my flower image from the same stamp set in versamark ink and heat embossed with a heat tool and clear embossing powder.

Then came the fun part, sponging Pink Pirouette ink across the embossed image.
