Can U Resist.

'Can U Resist', well I couldn't. This is the theme of the new challenge over at
 Fashionable Stamping Challenges. What an excuse to revisit  techniques I haven't used in ages.

We are sponsored by Flonzcraft who is offering a generous prize for our challenge winner. Please pop over for all the details and see what my design team sisters have been making.

So what did I do-
 First of all the stamps I used are  from Stampers Anonymous and are Wendy Vecchi's.
Also my old french script stamp.
I will begin  with the card blank, there is a little strip piece showing on the left..
This was random stamped with Veramark and dusted with Pans Pastels.

The next layer features a Dauber resist technique found in Tim Holtz's book  A Compendium of Curiosities.
Briefly you use a dauber to ink up the stamp, then let the images dry.
I used Pool and a Pearl dauber.
Shade the whole thing with distress inks.
 Spiced Marigold, Shabby Shutter and Vintage Photo.
Dry again
Mist a piece of kitchen roll , then rub over the  surface to show up the images.

Top Layer, a stamped and embossed flower using Dried marigold ink.
The butterfly was also embossed a couple of times and has a glossy look to it.
Thank you for taking time to read through this post.
I do appreciate you stopping by and the comments you kindly leave for me.

I will be entering the challenge at-
 Vintage Stamping which is Anything from Your Garden
