Easter Swap Emobss Resist

Hi stampers!  The card I have for you today is from a demo swap that I recently did.  I used the emboss resist technique which is where you heat emboss an image and then rub over it with ink.  I sponged my ink on but if you wanted a bolder look you can use a brayer.  The real trick is to make sure you wipe it off after you are done with a tissue or paper towel.  That really makes your image pop!  Here is the card:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Easter Blossoms
Paper:  crumb cake, blushing bride, whisper white
Ink:  Versamark, early espresso, crumb cake, blushing bride
Accessories:  Top note die, decorative label punch, tulip frames embossing folder, linen embossing folder, clear EP, rosettes, vanilla smooch spray

There is a lot going on with this card so I also thought I'd do a video for you on how to make it.  I hope you enjoy it!

And I hope the swappers who got my cards were pleased!

Happy stamping!
