Here is a card I did for a new challenge…the site is “In the Pink”. Of COURSE I have to get involved with these challenges 🙂 This first challenge is 50 Shades of Pink.
Inks: Spun Sugar and Vintage Velvet Distress Inks, Versamark
Cardstock: White, Pink and Maroon
Stamp: Penny Black Round and Round
Spellbinders: Floral Doily Accent
Other: Seafoam White EP, Pink Ribbon, Double sided tape, Foam tape, Heat Tool
I cased this card from Gina K Designs, where she demonstrates how the emboss resist technique. I haven’t done this before, so thought I would give it a try.
First, I stamped the image in Versamark, added the embossing powder, and sealed it with a heat tool. I then sponged all over with Spun Sugar, and sponged over the embossed images with Victorian Velvet. I rubbed over the images with a tissue, to remove any ink that was there.
The frame on the top and bottom is a left over scrap that I had cut with the Nestabilities Floral Doily Accent. This was white cardstock, which I sponged with Spun Sugar Ink before cutting it in half and attaching it with double sided tape. I then added the ribbon, and mounted it on the pink mat, then the maroon mat, then on the card.
I am entering this into In the Pink Challenge #1 – 50 Shades of Pink.
UPDATE: I wasn’t quite happy with the finished card, so I added smooch to each of the borders, here is how it turned out.
Bye for now,
