WT454 this week was to use an emboss resist technique. I chose the magic snowflake technique. However, it did not work the way the instructions showed. We were to heat emboss the design in white and then apply alcohol inks over top and then heat again. The design was supposed to pop out again, but it didn't so I covered the glossy cardstock with a piece of white cs (I should have used glossy, but I didn't) heated my craft iron to medium and ironed over the white cs. This lifted the embossing powder off the stamped panel onto the other white paper and left a white pattern. I wanted to add some more interest, so stamped some black foliage. I matted the panel with orange and black and added some green fibre and a sentiment. While I was working on the card, my friend called to invite me over for a surprise birthday tea for a former colleague. Got the card done just in time!

WOW! What a gorgeous effect you achieved! Who would have thought to lift the embossing off with another sheet of paper and the iron! Brilliant and I think I have to try this. The results are so unique and eye appealing!

What a beautiful card!! Sometimes what we think is a mistake becomes an especially good thing. I think your card looks amazing. I love the free feeling of the flowers. Your choice of paper to mount it on was great too. I also love the fibers. What a great card for your colleague.
