Emboss Resist

Hi Guys,

I thought I'd share two cards today (both shameless straight CASEs) that used the emboss resist technique. It is a technique that I tend to forget but it looks fab.

I made this first card initially for my cousin Adam's b'day but then made him another 'more blokey' one. This one ended up going to my neighbour who enjoys gardening. I CASed it from this card

Here it is:

It is not the best photo but you get the idea. The sponging came out quite soft. It took me a while to warm to the 'French Foliage' set by SU, but now I love it. I particularly love the drops and french script stamps in the set (thanks in a large part to Teneale Williams who seems to use those 2 stamps quite a bit).

I made the next card for my friend Ang who also enjoys card-making. She likes blues and is really feminine, and I have been wanting to CASE this card for quite a while.

I used the vine from 'Thoughts and Prayers', a real SU classic, with a background of 'French Script'. The tag is from a PTI set 'Tiny Tags' and the matching die.

I must go and hang out my washing and then do some Uni stuff. My Uni break went by way too fast.

have a fab day,
Fi x

Both cards are beautifully done with awesome backgrounds! CASEing cards is how we learn to craft cards and there's nothing wrong with that :)
