Peggy really is the queen of taking a technique and making it her own. This emboss resist card on glossy cardstock just glows! And one of my favorite things about this card are the touches of black in the flower centers, on the sentiment, and with the twine.
Here's my take:
The background was created by distressing Tiara White cardstock with Crushed Olive and Black Soot Distress Ink. The pierced holes were added using the Tim Holtz Ruler. Next I stamped Penny Black Sundial with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I then inked the flowers with the new Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Ink, Seedless Preserves. Finally, I used a black Stamper's Big Brush Marker from Faber-Castell to add the black accents to the flowers (dots and center line on petals). This was so easy to do, especially coloring in that center line, because the Stamper's Big Brush Markers do not stain embossed areas but rather the embossing acts a resist. So whenever I went out of the lines onto the embossing I just wiped it away with a baby wipe. :) Sentiment by Penny Black ( 30-071 Mimi in Paris).
Oh, and I have a new video up on the Mementos blog today using lots of mediums and creating several fun backgrounds. Here's a peek:
