Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge
Paper Players CAS Polka Dots challenge
Hand Stamped Sentiments Emboss Resist challenge
So here's my card:
For the Emboss Resist technique, I first stamped En Francais in Versamark on Whisper White then before embossing, I over-stamped the Dotted background stamp with Versamark. I then embossed in clear EP and sponged Poppy Parade over the whole piece. I really like the distressed look of the dots.
The flower was made using the 5-petal flower punch and the Boho Blossoms punch, along with a brad from this year's SAB offerings.
Edited to add: This card was chosen by both Hand Stamped Sentiments and Paper Players as a top pick this week. Thanks, guys!
Further edited to add: This card was also picked by Pals Paper Arts. Way cool!
