Emboss Resist Live in the Moment

I saw yesterday that Julie Koerber, of Out to Impress, is celebrating her fifth anniversary of blogging with a challenge. Her Celebrate Five challenge is to either make a 10-minute creation or a creation using a resist technique. Today I went with a emboss-resist technique because I had a bit of time to play. I'm hoping to play again with a 10-minute creation. I love those!

So here's my emboss-resist card:


I used three different Flourishes stamp sets to make this card: the medallion is from the Medallion Motif set, the trellis pattern on the paper medallions is from the Country Charm Borders set, and the sentiment is from the Life Lines set. I have to say that the pretty medallion from Medallion Motif is perfect for the emboss-resist technique. It really seems to bring out the details!

My colors come from this week's Play Date Cafe challenge:


A huge congratulations to Julie on five years of blogging! I always love seeing what she creates, and her work with Flourishes stamps is just outstanding.

Thanks so much for taking a peek at what made me happy today!

Ooo, so beautiful! The bluesy colors remind me of the gorgeous waters of Mexico. You're right: the emboss resist totally brings out the detail in that fab Flourishes stamp.
