Sympathy Resist


     Unfortunately, I was in need of a sympathy card.  This went together very easily.  It uses the emboss resist technique.  I started by stamping the lone tree from the Lovely As A Tree set in Early Espresso on Whisper White card stock.  I then stamped the large Medallion stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I love the way the tree image pops from behind the embossed image.  I finished by sponging on some Marina Mist and Soft Suede…just until I achieved the look I wanted.  I added a layer of Early Espresso and mounted it onto a Marina Mist card base.  I used the Decorative Label punch and punched it down to a smaller width.

   Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give a new technique a try :)
