Resist Embossed Flower

One of my favourite stamping techniques just happens to be resist embossing ... there are so many different ways to get inky and create lovely layered backgrounds or to make your main image pop.  For my card I'm sharing today I stamped and embossed my large flower bloom and leaves on watercolour paper before adding Brusho powders and spritzing with water leaving the colour to settle in between the fine lines of the stamps.  These were cut out and layered as I wanted a separate paler background behind to show off the vibrant colours.

The background topper was achieved by pressing a VersaMark ink pad through a brick wall stencil, heat embossed with EP then brushed over with distress ink to colour in between making the bricks pop as they resist the ink.

Finishing touches - brad in the centre of the flower and a few glossy accent raindrops.

My card was made for these two challenges:

Make My Monday Challenge # 73 Resist Embossing and

The Flower Challenge #21 Use a Previous Challenge (I've chosen #10 Embossing Heat/Dry from July 2017)

Die - unbranded stitched decagon
Stencil - Claritystamp brick wall; Mask - That Special Touch Moroccan
Inks - VersaMark, Brushos (lemon, orange, leaf green), Milled Lavender distress ink
EP - Opaque White
