This card meets the challenges posted over at Embellish magazine and also at Moxie Fab World. It was completely by chance that I was able to cover two challenges with one card -- what luck!
The colors in the Embellish challenge inspired me to make a card for a fall wedding. I've been wanting to try the emboss resist technique so the leafy image was clear embossed after I stamped the small polka dot background. I also clear embossed the large polka dots on the burgundy card base and the sentiment after it was stamped in burgundy.
This was my first time sponging ink on a card and I think it turned out close to what I envisioned.
stamps: mega mixed messages, polka dot basics, polka dot basics 2 (PTI); kind and caring thoughts (SU!)
ink: pumpkin pie, bravo burgundy (SU!); versamark
paper: very vanilla, bravo burgundy (SU!)
other: clear embossing powder (SU!); classic rectangle die (Spellbinders); orange ribbon (Michaels)
