Two Cards

What I have for you tonight is just two cards. The first uses a technique that is called resist embossing. You heat emboss a stamped image and then apply ink over that same image. The image that was heat embossed resists the ink. I used a clear embossing ink and powder to stamp my heart image. Then used a tissue to rub some Distress ink over that image. I used 6 different colors of ink, thus the rainbow of color effect. I think it looks really cool. Fun to do too!



Can you see above where I sprinkled the inked areas with water?! 

This next card actually goes with the post below. Just a simple card made with some leftovers from the February kit at A Million Memories. I had one of the banner pieces left and when I was cleaning up the remnants of the kit I thought that piece would look cute upside down as a bday hat. 



THanks for looking. Hope you all have a great weekend.
