I've already submitted an entry with dry embossing, but I was inspired by all the heat embossed beauties on Less is More Week 15 to dig out my embossing supplies. They've not been used in years, and I discovered that even my old Top Boss embossing ink pad still has some juice left in it!
I have long been wanting to try the resist method of embossing and then sponging ink over the top. I stamped my Inkadinkado trees stamp twice across the card base and embossed it in copper. Then I masked it off with post-its and sponged the panel in oranges, browns, and yellow.
For my last two cards, I was inspired by this card of Heather T.'s. I love her yummy pink panel with white and black flowers. I masked off a panel and embossed my flowers in white (I don't have any clear EP, but I must get some!). For the first card I sponged oranges and pinks, and on the second card I went with straight pink. Finally, I stamped more flowers over the top in Stazon black and added a sentiment.
I love how these turned out. There are so many possibilities that I want to try, but I had to call it good at 3 cards. You can be sure I'll be playing around with this in the future with snowflakes and fall leaves, but I needed some spring flowers in my life since the weather hasn't been cooperating!
Thank you, LIMettes, for all the inspiration!
