Emboss Resist Stripes

Somedays you just need to get inky.  

I had one of those days lately.  Everything I was inspired to make, left me covered in blotches of color...but looked FABULOUS!  

This card was one of those things.  

I used the emboss resist technique on the background of this card.  I heat embossed my stripes with clear powder, and then started sponging my color on.  I start with the lightest colors and work them together in the center of the card front.  Then I blended outward and into my darker colors.  Once blended, I used a soft cloth to buff any color remaining on my clear embossing off.   I chose to mount my card front onto a Smoky Slate card base, so the white stripes, and fun colors, could stand out.

I added a couple of banners in the darker colors to the card front, and topped them with a black banner with my sentiment heat embossed in white.

Thanks for stopping by!
