Resist technique

I wish I could take credit for the design of this gorgeous card, but alas, I saw it in a recent copy of Cardmaking and Papercraft and just had to give it a try myself :)

I first stamped the dandelions with versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, then overstamped them slightly offset using a variegated colour big and juicy inkpad. I then sponged over the whole thing with various distress inks to build up the cloudy background.

The dandelion stamps are by Lavinia stamps and the greeting is by Personal Impressions. Ribbon is from stash.

Thanks for stopping by :) x
