I used one of my all-time favourite techniques on this card - emboss resist. I just love the way the image appears as you add inks to the card. I started by stamping this large sentiment across the centre of the card and heat embossing with clear powder. I masked off the edge of the card, stamped a few snowflakes in versamark and heat embossed them. Then I started to add distress inks starting with yellow at the bottom, moving through orange and ending up pink. I removed the masking tape and then added more snowflakes using the same colour inks. On the inside I cut a mat layer of dark pink card and on the white panel I added a simple greeting along with some more snowflakes.
I'm submitting this one to Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#222 where this week it's MAKE YOUR MARK - I've certainly done that! I'm also playing along with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where it's ANYTHING GOES. I'm also going to submit this to Less is More - LIM#304 where the receipe is to use EMBOSS RESIST. I'm sure this isn't clean and simple enough, but the idea came from their challenge!! I might try to make a really CAS emboss resist card today! That's all for now.
