Say It With...Emboss Resist

Hi Guys,

I hope your week has been a great one!

Welcome to AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Challenge and this week you will need to pull out your embossing powders, heat gun and inks as it's 'Say It With...Emboss Resist'!

I LOVE this technique as I LOVE embossing, it's my favourite technique lol!

So here's my card:

I have used AnnaBelle Stamps 'Tree-MEN-dous' Stamp Set and embossed my tree in some AnnaBelle Stamps Clear Embossing Powder onto White cardstock and I used various different coloured inks(SU! Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Distressing Inks in Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters and Broken China)and applied my inks with a sponge and once I was finished and happy with the way it looked I took a cloth and removed the excess ink of my image.

I have also used a paper distresser and distressed around all my layers of cardstock and applied some Walnut Stain Ink around the edges to give my card an old, distressed feel.

For my embellishment I used some yummy newly release 'Natural Jute' from AnnaBelle Stamps and wrapped it around the top of my card in a criss-cross fashion and placed a Tim Holtz Muse Token hanging from the Jute and to finish off I place some AnnaBelle Stamps Artichoke Mini Sprinkles in the bottom right hand corner of my card.

I made this card for my older brother and I was excited that I had a 'K' Muse token in my stash as the 'K' represents Knowledge and my other brothers and I tease him saying things like 'You think your the tree of knowledge' a kinder statement then calling him a know it all lol, so he will understand the meaning of my card and I'm over the moon with my end results lol!
