For the SSS ‘s Resist Flickr Challenge #56, I chose to use an embossed resist technique with Distress Inks.
I first stamped my floral images in Versamark ink and then heat embossed the images using white embossing powder.
To create a more autumn look, I used 3 Distress Inks for an ombre effect. The ombre effect was created at a slight diagonal across the card front. I started with Abandoned Coral distress ink in the upper left-hand corner, then blended Squeezed Lemonade and finally Wild Honey to finish midway. I then started to blend using Squeezed Lemonade at a diagonal across the second-half of the card and finished with Abandoned Coral at the bottom right-hand corner. I kept blending and adding more color as needed across the entire front of the card until everything looked blended.
I added sequins in pink and cream to the card as well. These sequins were from my stash, but I think they are from Neat & Tangled.
When I assembled the card, I cut down the card front to 4” x 5.5”, and placed 3M foam tape all over the back to raise the panel. I then matted this against an A2-sized piece of cardstock in a cardstock color that picked up the pinky/coral hues in the card front. This in turn was mounted onto a top-folding, portrait-oriented, A2-sized card base.
Hope you like the finished product! Have a great day!
