I was messing around with embossing this butterfly onto glossy card stock. I love the technique. It is called Emboss Resist. The image you emboss with white or clear embossing powder does not take on the color added later. Hence the resist.
I used a brayer with a spectrum ink pad to roll color onto the glossy card stock after I embossed the butterfly.
It is a very simple card, but I like it because of the colors. I did use my Stampin’ Buddy, but you can see there were a few flecks of embossing powder that escaped on me.
I used Stickles in the center of each flower to cover up the holes in the centers of the flowers. I like how it adds a bit of sparkle to the card.
