Raspberry Suite CC 19

Ok, I'm back....this card was definitely inspired by the t-shirts. It is a technique call 'embooss resist' (check bottom of post for a quick tutorial). I've been hangin' for another 'Raspberry Suite' challenge and so couldn't wait to play along. I only wish I could get my christmas cards done as quickly LOL!

Stamps: Fancy flourishes (PTI), Star prints (PTI)
Card: Pink pirouette, pink passion, whisper white
Ink: Pink pirouette, soft sky, certainly celery, pink passion, chocolate chip, versamark
Accessories: Zigzag scissors, rhinestones, sponge, heat gun, clear embossing powder

Emboss Resist:

* Sponge different colours onto white/vanilla cardstock
* Stamp image with versamark over sponged cardstock
* Use clear embossong powder and heat emboss
* Sponge chocolate chip over embossed image

Hope these instructions help. This method hasn't always worked for me, but this time it turned out 'not too bad'.
