Spotlight on Emboss Resist and Brushos

Hi Everyone,

I have my spotlight post over at STAMPlorations today.

I am using emboss resist as my technique. It is super simple and I always love the effect you get with Brushos or similar pigment powders.

 I made two different cards, using two different blues shade for card #1 and only the color named gamboge for card #2. If you wondering about that color name  - I googled it for you:

Gamboge is a partially transparent deep saffron to mustard yellow pigment. It is used to dye Buddhist monks' robes because the color is a deep tone of saffron, the traditional color used for the robes of Theravada Buddhist monks.

My stamp supplies:

For the Birds, Trendy Butterflies (out of stock at the moment), Party Time, Bloom Happy, Stitched Nesting Dies

Curious to find out how I did this? Visit the STAMPlorations blog for a full tutorial!

Remember if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts and hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase  you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate (random drawing) OR your choice of 5x7 stamp set + a Spotlight Project guest designer spot (randomly drawn from the Top 3 picks).

to get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

Happy Stamping!

Beides sind wunderbare Frühlingskarten. Nach diesem trüben Winter sehne ich mich nach Farben und freue mich über jede solche fröhlich-farbene Karte.
Liebe Grüße

What stunners, Cornelia ... bold, saturated colour over the white that just pops against it ... so wonderfully vibrant and gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
