Emboss Resist using "Definitely Dahlia"

Definitely Dahlia is my favorite!
Good Afternoon!  How do you like my new blog look?  I worked on it all day yesterday during the rainy day!  Who goes on vacation and completely overhauls their blog?  ME!  I'd love comments on how you like it!  I have a few more things to add (few more flags on the right) but those will come as I add more features to my blog!  Yes, new features are coming soon!

This card was made at a workshop a few weeks ago with a group of ladies that I love to stamp with!  The hostess asked me to make a card using the Emboss Resist technique.  Not sure what that is?  Keep scrolling to find some quick steps for embossing!
I used the Butterfly Basics Bundle to make the butterfly and I popped it up and added Gold Sequin Trim to it's body.  I love purples and the combination between Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant is simply gorgeous!  I added some single sequins to the inside of the card with the sentiment.
Steps for Emboss Resist:
1.  Stamp your image using a Versamark Ink Pad. 
2.  Sprinkle on your embossing powder (you can use any color but I used white).
3.  Heat the embossing powder until the powder turns into a glossy finish.
4.  Grab a sponge, ink it up, brush off some ink on scrap paper (so it's not too dark).
5.  Rubbing the sponge over the image in a circular motion.  I just barely went on the outside of the image (for a shadow).  You will notice that the embossing "resists" the ink.  
6.  Once you have the desired affect, gently rub a klennex over the embossing to take off any extra ink.

Thanks so much for following me!  Did you know you can follow me on facebook?  I post lots of other ideas, classes and announcements!  Please follow me now!

WOW, love the card and I also love your new blog! Nice and bright and cheerful! I will say though, your picture seems to be hiding the first letters of every line in your paragraph. Maybe it's my computer, but I don't think so. Otherwise, it's great!
