Emboss resist! Wow, it’s always been a favorite technique since the first time i saw the magic of it. Stephanie from MFT just upped it a notched when she told us about doing woodgrain. OMW….i love how this turned out. I used water color paper and WOW white embossing powder of Memories White pigment ink for a nice bright white. Then as Stephanie told us, i used Pumice Stone distress ink over the embossing. It just really makes the grain unique. I’m always in need of Sympathy cards and thought this would be the perfect background to hold some Wild Flowers from MFT. I also followed Stephanies lead and smudged distress inks onto plain white cardstock and then cut my dies out of that for a very organic look.
