CC101 Challenge - Resist Stamping

Hello Friends

Talk about leaving things to the last minute!  Today is the last day for the CC101 Challenge which I have to admit I have not taken place for some time now.  The Challenge is to use the stamp resist technique with clear embossing powder.  This is one of my favourite techniques, so without further ado here is my piece.....

I have used three Tim Holtz stamps throughout, clear embossing powder, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks.  A little bit of spritzing of the background and all mounted onto some Bazzill cardstock to mount all the pieces on to the card.
I have made a fold out card with the front panel adhered to the front folded piece.
To finish the piece off I used some of my old book to make a Tattered Floral flower and a brad having inked the pages of the book.
Here is the inside panel.  I was trying to capture the Glimmer Mist which I had sprayed onto the whole card, but no such luck!  You will just have to believe me. Around the edges of the card I used a different flourish stamp which I inked with GT and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The space in the centre has been left in order that I can chose what sentiment to use when I need it.

Snippets were used in the construction of this card with the book as well as some of the dark brown cardstock.  I shall call down to the Playground to show this to the girls.  

Thanks for calling by.  Do please leave me a comment so I know you have been.

This is so gorgeous... a new favourite of yours for me! Those colours are wonderful together - so rich - and they work beautifully with the embossing. Such definition to the flourishes (LOVE that big one... ) - a really wonderful make!

I love that floral design, so classical and pretty. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. I am worse than you, though, I have missed two deadlines today. Not a good start to the year. Must do better - story of my life. Hope you have had a good Easter. xx Maggie

WOW - Sam - That is a stunner. I'm a sucker for a shaped card, as you know, but your inkiness and resist shtuff is just brilliant. 10/10

It speaks of nature and at the same time there is such sheer elegance to this.

Stunning card! And when enlarged, your shimmers did show up quite well. I admire this fold that you did so wonderfully well, and all the elements on this one, made it a real stunner. TFS
