How to resist...

a resist challenge....? Well, I don't, I jump right in. If you know me, you know I love embossing. So I am linking to Lily Pad, challenge is to use any resist technique.  I wanted to make a card for my BF who is going
through a difficult patch.

Lots of stamping, embossing and fussy cutting on this card...

For the front I used the embossing technique to resist my inking.

On the inside I used it to resist my glimmer misting.

On the envelope my ink resisted the water spraying.

Have a great day, Thanks for stopping by....

Stamps used:

Script and Québec stamp ( Thanks Lynne) is Crafty Individuals
The main flower is La Blanche
The sentiment is from Papertrey
The secondary flowers are from Girls Paperie
The inside flower and the upper swirls; sorry, I don't remember...

Embossing powder : Tsukineko White

Inks used are Tim Hotlz distress stains Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint and Wild Honey..

The base paper is Prima.

Glimmer mist is homemade, as well as the stick pin.

Linking to Lily Pad; use any resist technique
