Emboss Resist Card

This card is for the husband of a friend of mine. He suffered a stroke, but is progressing well, thank God. I wanted to try something new so I gave the emboss resist technique a try.  After embossing some Martha Stewart leaf stamps in white, I sponged on distress inks. The Paper Smooches sentiment is also embossed, but on vellum. I am quite pleased with how it turned out.  Take a look:

Distress Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade
Ink:  Versamark,
Embossing Powder:  Wow Clear, Wow White
Card stock:  My Stash
Stamps:  Martha Stewart (leaves); Paper Smooches Spiritual Sampler
Accessories:  Vellum (my stash), Theresa Collins enamel dots
