Today's card was inspired by Stampin' Up! CEO Sara Douglass. Sara showed a cool resist technique on her Facebook page last week and I couldn't wait to try it out. I even made my own Designer Series Paper. I hadn't used the Garden in Bloom set before but I was absolutely hooked after my first image was stamped perfectly. I chose to showcase the outgoing In Colors for 2015-17 as I 'm so sad to see them go. Although, I 'm sure the new In Colors for 2017-19 will be awesome. Here is the Garden in Bloom set in more detail and you can really see how the two-step layers could be used:
My card started with a piece of Whisper White card and I stamped the images from Garden in Bloom, some in first generation and some in second generation to give real depth. Once I was happy with the stamped images, I inked the Brushstrokes stamp in Versamark and added clear embossing powder to create a resist. I used a sponge dauber to add the Mint Macaron inked detail.
I love how this turned out and will definitely be trying this technique again. I hope you enjoyed this card. If there is a technique that you want me to showcase next, be sure to leave a comment.
