Hello everyone! At Just Us Girls this week, our Trend challenge is the emboss resist technique.
I was watching The View the other day, and the background in this photo caught my attention. I thought it would work well for this technique.
So this is what I came up with. I had to make a card for my niece's husband's 30th birthday and I thought it the inspiration would make a great card. I stamped the gingham background in Versamark on Bristol cardstock and embossed it in white embossing powder. Then I sponged blue print sketch oxide ink over it. I was hoping for a darker color blue. I took a paper towel to wipe off the excess in on the embossed areas. All I had left to do was die cut the numbers and stamp and emboss the sentiment. I added some Nuvo drops (I didn't think my usual crystals would work on a masculine card!).
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our January guests on the JUGs blog.
