A piece of of work using the resist technique. The background card started off as a piece of A5 white card. The corner stamps (Elusive Images) were stamped using Versamark and embossed with clear powder.

Black ink was then applied all over the card and it does not stick to the embossing so these areas still show up as white. Once the ink was dry, the whole thing was rubbed over with a tissue to take any remaining black off the embossing.

The same technique was applied for the Butterflies again a stamp from EI (this was entered in one of their challenges last year). Once the ink was dry and they had been buffed up, their wings were curled slightly to make the whole thing a bit 3D and then bonded in place with silicon glue. Mats, in white and black, were added to complete the front of the card.
