I've been doing a little bit of playing again.... I spotted a card by the lovely Laura Fadora recently, and was inspired to try the technique she used which is emboss resist.
I stamped the images with Versamark - then used clear embossing powder to heat emboss. Then I coloured the images using Distress Ink Pads applied with a sponge. It's really easy, as you don't have to worry about staying in the lines, as after the colour is applied, the images are fussy cut - and in actual fact, if a tiny border outside the embossed shape is there - it actually looks good! I used a similar layout to Laura (with some differences) as I was so impressed with her card - thanks Laura!
I used a Tim Holtz stencil sponged through with pale pink on my white card before adding the flowers with 3D foam pads.. then I tried a splatter - which everyone I see makes look so easy....... well, I haven't mastered it yet, and unfortunately got splatters where I didn't WANT splatters! Please ignore those!
