Day 1 in class - Emboss Resist technique

I am a little behind with homework for Day 1 in class "Stretch Your Stamps 2".
Day 1 was tricky for me 'cause I just didn't think I had the right stamps for the techniques. First I tried the technique shown by Lisa Spangler with Mist Resist. This failed completely. My embossing powder did not cover well enough, so the mist got everywhere.
So, then I thought I'd give Kristina Werners technique Emboss Resist a go.
Not perfect covering with the embossing, but the end result is very satisfying. (Believe the trouble with the embossing is that I need to re-ink my VersaMark pad).

I have added a bit of shimmer to the HELLO with my Wink of Stella pen. I actually got inspired by Cecilie. I even used her tip about applying the Shimmer on the die-cut sentiment before I adhered it to my card. Thanks, Cecilie :o)

With this card I am participating in:
 Pia :o)
Supplies used:


  1. Skønt kort - sikke nogle flotte farver, lige til at blive glad i låget af :-)

  2. Super skønt kort Pia, og fantastisk flotte farver, som automatisk får et smil frem, når man ser på det.

  3. Når men ser det kort, kan man ikke andet end at blive glad!

  4. This is so striking Pia! Great technique! I'm really enjoying your posts about your stamping classes!! Hope you are feeling better.

  5. This looks amazing and I'm so glad you kept at it. I haven't tried this technique yet, I don't have any background stamps so need to find something else to use. If mine can turn out even a little bit as good as yours, I'll be happy!

  6. Herlige farver! Og hvis du ikke havde skrevet at embossingen havde drillet ville jeg da have troet at det var "lidt små distresset" med vilje - flot.

  7. Pia, very gorgeous!!! Lovely embossing and distressed ink... WOW, I ADORE the sentiment in black with this! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology!

  8. This is so perfect, Pia! I love the rainbow stripes and the bright, happy feel of this! Don't you just love the Wink of Stella pen?! :)

    Thank you for joining us over at CASology this week!
