This flower from Happiness Is.......by The Craft's Meow, is PERFECT for this technique! The big floral image was stamped several times with Versamark and heat embossed with white Filigree embossing powder and then several shades of pinks and reds were sponged over the image. My floral panel was also embossed but with clear embossing powder and then Antique Linen was sponged over the images and around them for the distressed effect. My thatched background is a stamp that I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. It is the Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts. I also heat embossed it with clear EP. My color scheme came from the Embellish Magazine's: Embossed Flowers Color Trends Challenge. This also fits the challenge over at Lily Pad Cards this month: Emboss Resist.

Lots of embossing!
I had oh so good intentions of getting things done around my house and in my craft area today but when I got a call from the answering service at 1 am and then worked until 5:30, I had to work some sleep into my day!! I have been wanting to play along with The Craft's Meow sketch challenge all month and well, you guessed it. Tonight is the cut off for submitting. So I did get a wee bit of time to make my card. I had some fun with all the embossing........a technique I am loving lately especially with my Distress Inks.
