Resist Postcard


I decided to treat myself to a play been as though yesterday's key skills moderation visit went very well and last night was the last evening of my teaching course.

I stamped and clear embossed the 'white' wording.  They are so white because of the glossyness of the paper. Background is swooshed with rusty hinge, wild honey and crushed olive distress inks.  Black stazon was used to stamp the main images and mustard stazon was used to stamp the same wording.  Thanks Jo for the inspiration.

Looks really good, Sam. We've been doing a clear embossing resist challenge so it's one of the things I've been doing a lot of lately. There again, resist is one of my favourite techniques, anyway! Glad your moderation went well - nerve wracking, isn't it, lol?

You must be relieved everything went so well and you are obviously in a great creative mood as a result. Congrats on all counts. The resist piece worked wonderfully and I can hardly take any credit but thanks for the mention!
