Le Bebe

The card I have to show today is from a technique challenge issued by Nichole during this week's PTI anniversary party. I've embossed before but I don't think I've done an embossed resist technique. I learned that solid stamp images are naturally more suited to this type of technique. I didn't have any PTI stamps that fit that criteria but I did have this cute little onesie stamp. I also learned that Pure Poppy does NOT work for this technique - it's much to dye intense and colors the embossed image (it doesn't "resist" at all!)


The card is square - 4.25 x 4.25"
Stamp: onesie (Savvy Stamps)
Paper: Kraft, Sweet Blush, and Stampers Select White (PTI)
Ink: Sweet Blush (PTI)
Other: square scalloped nestibilitiy, Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, square punch, ribbon, button, rustic cream twine (PTI)

I know it's too late to win any contests with some of the other challenges that PTI has issued but I still hope to get to some of them just for fun and to stretch my creativity. We all need to stretch every now and again, don't we?

Have a great day!
