Papertreyink Make It Monday #291 Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments with


I finally found some time to create something for PTI Make It Monday #291 Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments.

Ashley has a great video this week for this technique.

Like most of the country lately, it has been really, really hot! My card has fall colors because I can’t wait for it to come!

I love all the Make It Market Mini sets and pulled out Color Pop Autumn.

I cut a piece of Bristol smooth paper using the Mix and Mat Postal Die. I stamped Bountiful with Pacific Point ink (SU.) After letting that dry for a second, I moved the stamp over just a smidge and embossed it again with Versamark and clear matte powder.

I began adding Old Olive ink all over the card and you can see the white shadow.

After inking, I let it dry well again as I have found the it takes Bristol a while to dry because the ink sits on top a little longer than regular card stock. That is one of the properties I really like about Bristol, it blends ink well.

I spritzed a little water on using my Distress mister and dried it off.

Next, I die cut the preprinted flowers that are included in the kit and added them with liquid glue.

I cut a piece of Enchanted Evening (such a lovely, rich blue) and adhered those together. This was  mounted it on a base of Pinefeather and Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers.

This was a fun technique I will be incorporating into future cards! Thanks Ashley.

Have a great day.

    Love your card and Fall color palette, Katherine! However, it's been beautiful in the Pacific NW finally so I'm definitely not ready for Fall.
