Double Resist Snow Flurry

This is one of my favorite techniques although I don't use it often. First I wheeled the Snow wheel across a piece of Whisper White card stock using VersaMark ink. I then embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I randomly stamped the snowflakes from Snow Burst in VersaMark over and around the already embossed area. I let the VersaMark set for a moment (do not emboss) and then brayered over the whole piece with Blue Bayou ink. The results are two different layers of resist. The embossed area will completely resist the ink and the VersaMark will only lightly accept the ink. It is very pretty in person. I love this look with leaves too! To finish my card I attached the finished layer to a strip of Soft Sky and the onto another piece of Whisper White that has the Whimsy jumbo wheel rolled on it in Soft Sky and the the smaller snowflake form Snow Burst stamped in Blue Bayou. This whole thing is attached to a base of Blue Bayou that has the front bottom scalloped with the small corner rounded, pierced with the paper piercier, and little dots with my gel pen. Finally I stamped the Happy Holidays from Riveting and punch out the center. Layered it on a piece of Whisper White and stamped the small snowflake inside. This whole piece was then punched out and layered on the designer label punch! Hope you enjoyed. This was the technique at our last technique class and everyone said they loved it. We also did a leaf card and 6 x 6 page for our books.
