Charming Emboss Resist

The concept of a resist is quite simple - continued. At the May Stamp-a-Stack we made 2 cards with this technique - yesterday's post showed one of them. The technique really is very simple, you put something on the card that "resists" the ink - i.e. makes it so the paper won't hold the ink. For both of the May cards we heat embossed an image and then sponged ink over the embossing. The ink sticks to the paper but not to the embossed image.

The embossed image on this card is from a stamp set called: Charming. This is one of the retiring sets. The images are all small and intended to go with the Simply Adorned Jewelry line which is also retiring. 

Simply Adorned was a really fun concept in Jewelry. You can buy chains for necklaces or bracelets and add window charms which could be decorated with designer papers or stamped art. You can customize your jewelry to match your clothes or to celebrate an event. These accessories are now available "while supplies last". Availability changes daily so check the store listings for desired items. Type the word "adorned" into the search box.

What do you think of the decorative punched holes on this card? They were made with a tool called the Mat Pack.
