The challenge this week is Embossing Resist. It's a simple technique that uses clear embossing powder and embossing ink (I used Top Boss from Clearsnap) on white cardstock. Then I added spray inks and and stamps. Wipe with a paper towel and your embossed image pops!
There is an excellent tutorial for this technique --> HERE

Jeanne - what a wonderful dose of colour to wake me up on a grey morning. I love the loopy flowers in behind that fabulous sentiment stamp. The whole thing reminds me a bit of batik - the slight colour gradation, I suppose, as well as the white resist.
