Flowers Resist


I like the emboss resist technique but I always forget about it.  Well this time I followed it through and this is my card. flowers

I believe this stamp is from Sunday International but I am not sure.  I made this card when I was not cataloging my stamps. I used one the multicolored stamp pads to get the effect.

I made these tags using no stamps.  I did have to cut the flowers and I would suggest using very small scissors.  I got the paper from Paper Maniac – Kaisercraft.

Did you say – Alter????????

The theme of Paper Maniac is altered items.  I decided to take a dried plum jar (plums).  Yes I like prunes. I used modge pod to adhere the paper and I used my bow easy to make the bows.  The die cuts like the bird are from the paper pad from KaiserCraft.
