Emboss Resist with a Stencil

I wanted to try my hand at Emboss Resist Technique, and this is what I came up with. Remind you, that this is not my original card. (Its a process of elimination.) The flower is from a stencil (Elegant Trio Stencil Set), that I sponged with whisper white craft ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then, you can stamp anywhere. If ink gets on the embossed area, just use a paper towel and rub the embossed area, and the ink (from words, or images) will be removed. Pretty neat, huh? I purchased the vintage trinkets and aren't the brads just adorable? They look like tiny metal buttons. I used a plain brown brad to hold the flower together and top it off with a half pearl. I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the soft suede piece.
I like it. I have a few customers who aren't fans of pink, so I made a few blue (Marina Mist) ones. But now, I kinda like the blue better. These will be sent out with orders that I received over the weekend. I include a hand-stamped card with every order, its my way of saying 'thank you, for your business'. Then, my customers have a card on hand incase they need one in a jiffy, or use as inspiration!
Which do you like better, Pink or Blue? Post a comment.
