Emboss Resist meets Ombre ~ Thank you card

Today I have been working on some thank you cards and the Beautifully Baroque stamp was just calling out to be used.  I think it was a bit of a swan song as this is another of the stamps that is retiring when the new Stampin’ Up catalog is released at the beginning of June (but it is still available while stocks last) FREE Shipping ends tonight!!!

April 14 thanks you cardsI used the emboss resist technique where you use Versamark to stamp the image onto Whisper White card, cut to 51/4 x 4″, then use white embossing powder.  Once this is ‘fixed’ with the heat gun and allowed to cool for a few minutes I used Stampin Sponges to apply the  color.  From the middle out I used Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and finally a little smidgen of Island Indigo to creat the ‘ombre’ effect.  You need to apply the ink sparingly and use a circular motion to get a fairly smooth finish.

A length of 1/8 Bermuda Bay tafetta ribbon across the bottom of the layer then adhered to Island Indigo card base cut at 81/2 x 51/2. Three rhynstones topped of the card and the sentiment was from the Petite Pairs stamp set and used the Ticket Duo Punch. Pretty pleased with the final result 🙂
