Not So Inspired

I saw a card using the resist technique and decided to pull out my embossing powder and inks.  I’ll just show you what I did- even though I know I have should have chosen a different background paper.  You’ll see why –

To do this you stamp your sentiment first.  Then stamp in Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Wipe, rub or sponge ink over the embossed area – wipe off the excess.  I’ll just go ahead and say right here – do not use pink tones behind green unless you want a muddy brown look! 

You will do a better job than I – I’m sure!  I’ll have to play around with this design after I finish my Going, Going, Gone stamp camp and convention projects. 

Wave goodbye to Party Hearty!

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

  1. Love what you did with this. Never thought to stamp the sentiment first. I’m still rather new at card making but have learned so much from your site. TFS

  2. I love the technique, and the grass looks so pretty with the colors you’ve used, Fran!! Love your fun birthday card too!!
