Resists

I spent a good few hours yesterday playing with resist techniques. These cards are made by embossing a background image in clear embossing powder, using inkpads direct to paper then ironing off the embossing powder, its fun and you can get a lovely effect using coloured card. I've made quite a few and have a whole pile of papers to use now. Most of the stamps Ive used are from yesterdays delivery except the background stamps which are Anna Griffin, Lost Coast and Purple Onion, what fab names some stamp companies have! This purple card is inspired by the CPS sketch of the week. I meant to do a resist with clear embossing powder but picked up the clear holographic by mistake so I left it sparkly instead of ironing it off and matched it with some ribbon that has sparkles too.

Fantastic news, it's all arranged and Im definately going to the Stamp show in Edinburgh on the 3rd of June with my fab crafty friends, you know who you are, I can't wait!
