Hey, I participated in another challenge! Today is my entry for the Essentials by Ellen August 2016 Pin-Sights Challenge.
Here is the inspiration board:
From the inspiration board, I focused on flowers and the colors pink, white and gold. I decided to do an emboss resist technique because I saw the technique at least twice recently on blogs (Kristina Werner, Laura Bassen). The roses were embossed in clear, and then I blended Distress Inks over them when the embossing had cooled. After the ink was dry, and any excess ink buffed off the roses with a paper towel, I stamped the leaves and embossed them in gold. Pop on a sentiment, an scatter some sequins, and the card is finished.
