PTI Emboss Resist Challenge

Nichole Heady of PTI has issued yet another challenge in this 3rd year Anniversary Celebration. She posted her first (of which we hope there are many) video demonstrating the emboss resist technique. We were then to use a form of it to create a project. This is something I have never tried and was eager to make a card. I think this is the first time in over a year that I actually had all the supplies I needed. I had just ordered the clear Filigree embossing powder during the last release. Here it is.



Not bad for a first attempt. I see some things I'd like to change and will definitely practice and make more. The birch trees were stamped with Smokey Shadow ink. I used spring rain and enchanted evening ink to create what I hope looks like light shining "Through the Trees". The sentiment is from "With Sympathy". Hope you like it. And thanks for dropping by.
