Simply Irresistible – A Card Challenge

I am very excited to share today’s post; I’ve teamed up with The Foiled Fox to host a challenge. It’s a fun one and there are some generous prizes from The Foiled Fox on offer. As the name hints, the challenge involves the emboss resist method, one of my recent fave techniques. I decided to use the distress oxide inks alongside some gold embossing because I wanted to see how the DiOxes worked with emboss resist.

I worked on hot pressed watercolour paper, embossing the Felicity stamp first, then blending DiOx inks on top. The gold embossing resisted the ink and remained shiny. Next I coloured inside all the flowers and leaves with a wink of stella clear marker which added sparkle and oxidized the colour making it all lighter. I splattered some sparkly ink of stella liquid here and there also.

I used gold cardstock to frame the panel and create a die cut banner. I stamped on the banner with wilted violet DiOx ink and was impressed by the sharpness of the impression; I didn’t emboss it, just left it to dry. The banner is popped up on violet foam which just happens to match perfectly. Yay!

Now that you have seen how easy a little emboss resisting is please let the inspiration flow then link your card up on The Foiled Fox blog. The guidelines and link up are on their blog and you have two weeks to participate.  I will be popping over there regularly to see what you have dreamed up. I can’t wait. Here’s a short cut if you are ready to post or looking for inspiration Simply Irresistible Link Up
