Love to Scrap - challenge #2

Love to Scrap is a new challenge blog that just started up this month.  I missed out on their first challenge, but found out about them in time to join in their second challenge, which is to create a project using embossing. 


This card uses a technique I've seen before but hadn't tried.  The flower image was stamped onto white cardstock with VersaMark ink, then embossed with Zing white embossing powder.  I used a brayer to cover the cardstock and image with Hero Arts Pool Shadow Ink, then wiped off the embossed image with a paper towel to get the "resist" effect.  I really like the look of this technique and it's easy, which is always a plus!
