SC 015/11...

G'Day Friends,

Another week has gone & that means a NEW challenge.  This week it was set by Gwen, so be sure to pop over to leave some lovely comments for both  Kris & Gwen

As usual, we have 2 parts to the challenge, and this week along with the sketch, we had to use that great Technique - Emboss Resist.  This is such a fun technique that you will love seeing the finished creation once you start.

For my card, I wanted to use the new "IN" Colour - Pool Party, so I went straight for my trusty Colour Coach.

Measurements -
Base Card - Pool Party - 11 5/8" x 4 1/8" or 29.5cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 - Whisper White - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5 cm x 10cm
Layer 2 x 2 - Wild Wasabi - 2 1/4" x 2 1/2" or 5.5cm x 6cm
Layer 3 x 2 - Whisper White - 2 1/8" x 2 3/8" or 5cm x 5.5cm

For my background on the larger piece of Whisper White, I heat embossed my image onto the Whisper White using Versamark, Not Quiet Navy Inks & Clear Embossing Powder.  Tutorial may be seen in this post 

I then Heat Embossed the 2 small pieces of Whisper White using Embossing Powder - White.  Tutorial for Emboss Resist is separate posting & may be found after this posting.

Prior to adhering the Emboss Resist pieces to Wild Wasabi, I randomly stamped the same image over the top using Pool Party Ink.  Because I had used such light colours for my resist, I needed the images stamped  to bring out the colours.  These pieces were then adhered to the Whisper White.

For my greeting, I used my SU Marker - Not Quiet Navy & stamped direct onto a scrap of Whisper White I punched 2 Daffodil Delight pieces of cardstock using my Scallop Oval Punch & adhered these behind the greeting just enough so that I had a little of the scallop showing.  This was adhered to the Base Card with SU Dimensionals.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Pocket Silhouettes, Afterthoughts
Ink - Versamark, Not Quite Navy, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party
Cardstock - Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Punches - Extra Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Accessories - Embossing Powder - White, Embossing Powder - Clear, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, SU Sponges, SU Marker - Not Quiet Navy
