PTI Make it Monday #135 - Layered Emboss Resist - Second Act

Hello again!

So originally I had posted both cards in one post, but then realized I couldn't enter them both in the challenge without each one having a separate URL! You live and learn I guess! At least now I know!

Ok my next card I'm on the fence about. I kind of like it, I like the simplicity of it, but I think maybe I should have done water coloring rather than using the ink blending tool. Also I sprayed it with some gold perfect pearls mist and I think I went a little crazy!

I took a Vintage Cream card base and stamped a sentiment and the largest flower from the PTI Christmas Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped the sentiment so that it would be in the middle of the flower, stamped in PTI True Black ink, and then stamped the flower in Versamark over the sentiment and then heat embossed in clear. I took my ink blending tool and some PTI Pure Poppy ink and blended the ink onto the rest of the card base. I stamped a few snowflakes from PTI's Instant Photo: Holidays stamp set in gold ink and then sprayed the whole thing with the perfect pearls mist. I used a damp paper towel to wipe any excess ink and mist off of the flower. Like I said, not sure I love it. I may try it again only with water coloring instead.

Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting a second time!

  1. I LOVE your color choice and the simplicity of the design. TFS.

    1. Thank you for such a nice comment! I really like the simple design too, just not sure about the blending portion. I guess we're all our own worst critic right. ;)
