Who could resist?

The anniversary festivities continue at Papertrey Ink!  Today's challenge was TOO good to resist...hee!
We were to make a card using the emboss resist technique! 


I was inspired by all of the pretty botanical samples from Nichole and the PTI Design Team!  I stamped the flower from Blooming Button Bits in Versamark right on to PTI's Vintage Tea Leaves designer paper, then heat-embossed with fine detail clear powder by Ranger.  Once finished, I covered the whole piece with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.  Beate at SCS calls this the "emerging color" technique, as well.  When you wipe off the brown ink from the flower, the color or print underneath the embossed section "emerges" like magic!  Used PTI Vintage Cream, Kraft, and Spring Moss cardstock/button, too!

The prize for a randomly-selected winner...ALL of the PTI inks, a free stamp set, and even MORE goodies for embossing...like I said, "Who could RESIST?"...Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous job on this challenge! I had to enlarge the pic because your Emboss Resist technique was so perfect, I thought it was actual printed paper!
