Emboss Resist

Happy Wednesday i'm here to share my emboss resist project for Paper Maniac. This was another technique that I have never done so I was a little scared at first about how or what I was going to do and the biggest decision what stamp I was going to use for this technique. Well I always love the big bold images that Unity always has in their store kits and they are perfect for this technique this image from one of the older Unity store kits but this technique would work with some of their newer Unity store kit images as well. I used some Tim Holtz distress inks love these they are so fun and there are some gorgeous colors. The Dp is from Memory Box these papers are gorgeous.

It is my flower I made it from a brown paper Bag and with a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink I got My flower a perfect color to match My card. I know you have seen me make these flowers before but just in case I will tell you how I did it. I took a favorite Flower Die or you can use a punch and I cut out about five flowers crumpled them up a bit and added a brad in the middle to keep it together and I also added a button for a fun look. My Dp is from the Material Girl Cosmo Cricket along with a fun sentiment from Our Craft Lounge set called Say It With Flowers How perfect is that sentiment love it.

This weeks theme over at Paper Maniac is to use paint on your creation. I really wanted a big image to use with the paint and this Butterfly from the new Unity Store Kit was perfect for this. The Dp I used is from The Max and Whiskers collection by Basic Grey I really love the warm tones of these papers and I really wanted something to match the color paint I used for my image. One last thing to finish my card off was some fun faux stitching and some beautiful ribbon.
