Just Us Girls 82 Resist Embossing.....{birthday wishes}

Just Us Girls are challenging you to RESIST EMBOSSING....oh wait, not to actually resist the act of embossing ;)  Check out the technique on this {TUTORIAL} at split coast grab your heat gun and let's go!

I also drew inspiration from the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday 12 challenge, the Card Patterns Sketch #112, the Colour Q color #82 challenge and the butterfly challenge happening in The Shabby Tea Room.  I love the way all of these challenges played so nicely together!

For the JUGs emboss resist challenge, I stamped a Papertrey Ink flower over newsprint paper from SU! using Versamark Ink and clear embossing powder to seal the deal.  I sponged on baja-esce blues and pear-esce green to make the flower pop out of the ink.  I have to say that embossing and I are usually like oil and water but I was quite happy with the way this turned out.  Thanks, Andrea, for challenging me to bring out the embossing powder!

The Papertrey Ink pen lined edge was done using an avocado colored marker to match the avocado stamped sentiment from PTI's Faux Ribbon set.  The flower stem is also from Faux Ribbon set.

For tons of emboss resist inspiration please visit the rest of the Just Us Girls team along with Guest Designer, Teresa Kline.  We bid a fond farewell to Teresa after a month of inspired designs for the Just Us Girls blog.  It was a honor to work with you!

And thanks so much for stopping by here!
