Sparkling Resist

Sparkling Resist

Wow, there are so many fabulous techniques in the June 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I think I want to try them all! This card uses the sparkling resist technique, although I wasn’t quite able to capture the sparkle in my picture. The layout I used is Weekend Sketch Challenge #83, hosted by Lori Craig.

I stamped the outline flower from the A Beautiful Thing set with Baja Breeze ink on a 4-5/8″ x 2-3/8″ piece of Whisper White card stock. After making sure the ink was dry, I rubbed the embossing buddy over the paper and stamped the bold flower with VersaMark ink, then embossed with Iridescent Ice powder. Next I brayered Chocolate Chip ink all over and wiped the ink off the flowers with a paper towel. The rub-on sentiment was originally on two lines, but I made it go across the entire width of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
