A Fun Technique

Welcome - thank you for taking time to visit.

Late last month there was a tutorial over at Our Daily Bread Designs using embossing resist to form a background.  I liked to look of it, so 'had a go' and this is the result.

For the background I chose to use a butterfly image, and I was glad I did as it was very hard to see where I had been - I was not worried that some overlapped, as a flock of  butterflies don't fly in straight lines when disturbed.

Not all the embossing was as neat as above, so when I assembled the card I added the corner ribbon and the sentiment label in strategic places.

I had fun playing with this technique, and have been dreaming up other colour and stamp combinations to use.

I am linking this to:
