A very popular technique

Everybody loves the wonderful technique Resist Embossing! Myself included, and I have been making af few cards lately with this wonderful technique.  I love the wow effect it gives when you start adding color to the embossed images!!

Today there is a new challenge up at Lily Pad Cards challenging you to use that particular technique.

Here is my inspirational card (see my last two blog posts for more)... I chose to stamp & emboss the circles then color in with distress inks and punch out for this cluster type of card...

Some of the circles are adhered directly onto the background - others are pop dotted with some foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. I used Studio Calico/Hero Arts stamps for this card and was inspired by the Studio Calico style for my design here...

Stamps: Hero Arts Studio Calico / ST510, ST508
Papers: Bazzill kraft, Hero Arts layering paper Eggshell
Inks: Ranger distress

Resist embossed circles. The stitching is done with a built-in feature on my sewing machine...


Please do not forget to go to the Lily Pad Cards site to check out the rest of the inspirational cards (you are in for a treat !) and the details (any kind of resist goes).
Also there is a great list of tutorial links for this technique - if you haven't tried it before.

I hope you feel inspired to play along - I am sure you can't resist :-) !

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Hvor er det smukt... en lidt anderledes måde at anvende resist embossing på, og en rigtig flot syning. Det er vist lige en udfordring for mig :-)
Ha' en rigtig god weekend!!!

Love the colors and the design! Really makes a lovely statement that resist doesn't always have to be so 'girly'!
