OCC Emboss Resist Challenge

Today's OCC challenge is to make a card/project with the Emboss Resist Technique. I know, a technique challenge, EEK! Technique challenges scare me. However, I did it and so can you! {smile}



Here are links to all the projects from the OCC girls: Dawn, Lynda, Jackie, Silke, Kim, Laurie, Julee, Cindy, Amy, and Jennifer.

I stamped the Impression Obsession Friendship sentiment in Versamark onto Neenah 80 lb White CS and then heat embossed it with JudiKins Detail Gold EP. After it set and cooled, then I cut out the sentiment with my new Labels One Nestabilities, left the die in place, and sponged both Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa ink all over the panel. Both of the layered Labels One panels are up on Dimensionals, so are the prima flowers. Both flowers started out looking like the white one on the left. I painted the one on the right with Pink Shimmerz. You can get all the linked supplies at Stamper's Dream.

The layout is last week's SFYTT from Jen Del Muro.
