Resist stamping

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there {{{{{hugs}}}}}
I am very late today, had to take Stephen for his speech therapy this morning, and tomorrow morning it's his physio session.

Here is my card for today, which has a bit of resist stamping on it although it doesn't show up very well on the photograph!

I stamped my favourite Stampendous agapanthus cluster stamp with versamark then heat embossed it with detail white (also Stampendous) heat embossing powder, then inked with Memento inkpad. All this onto white linen card from Papermill Direct which I then layered onto Papermania blue card, which in turn was layered onto pearlised white card embossed with Ebosser Honeycomb A4 folder. Another layer of blue onto the hammered white base card, and a smidgin of ribbon plus a Marianne diecut completes it. Mmmmmmmmm, that's a lot of layers for me!  :o)

Jackie such a stunning card, am impressed I have not tried this yet as I am not very good at embossing, but I suppose like anything it takes practice. Hope Stephen is continuing to make progress. Love Alison xx

Gorgeous card Jackie, Love the soft colours, I haven't used this technique for ages, so you have inspired me.
Hope Stephen is doing well, tell him to keep up the good work, we keep him in our thoughts and wonder how he is. xx

It does look beautiful Jackie.. although as you say, it's difficult to see, but I zoomed in and could see the details...

And I promise I have not forgotten the card.. it sits in my craft room looking at me every time I go in... but I've had a busy time lately.. and have quite a few orders to do.. but I WILL get it to you!!

I agree with all the previous comments Jackie. I can see the resist embossing a treat and it;s really pretty. That little ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.
