Lisa is our Teapot Tuesday hostess. We are sending cards of encouragement to Tricia. Lisa challenged us to create a card using one of our favorite card making techniques. I love to stamp my own backgrounds and I love the ink-resist technique, so I used those techniques on this card for Tricia.
Using blending brushes I lightly brushed on some Turquoise and Grape ink on my white panel and heat set the ink. Then I stamped several images with Versamark, clear embossed and heat set them. I then stamped more images in Versamark, white embossed and heat set those. I used the blending brushes again to heavily add more Turquoise and Grape inks over the embossed images. I used a paper towel to wipe off any inks sitting on top of the embossed images. Lastly, I stamped the butterfly and the grouping of tiny blossoms with Versamark and embossed with Pewter embossing powder.
I matted the finished panel with aqua and purple cardstock. I stamped and fussy cut the flower embellishment and die cut the leaves from glimmer cardstock. I added Wink of Stella to the flower. The sentiment was stamped and embossed with pewter embossing powder on vellum cardstock.
Thank you, Lisa, for hosting. LeAnn, I hope your friend, Tricia, is greatly uplifted by all the Teapotter cards coming her way.

simply beautiful. When I started out with embossing powders, I only had gold and every time I see gold embossed images it takes me back 20+ years ago to the beginning of my card ministry. Great colors, and you did a fantastic job with the vellum.

Totally love the ink resist technique and this is no exception of how beautiful the technique can be. This is a great design I'm sure Tricia will treasure. Thank you for participating in this week's teapot challenge on Tricia's behalf. All the work you put into creating this beauty is appreciated.
