Resist Embossing card

Okay I dusted off the ole brayer to do this card for Annabelle Stamps Blog. I also followed the sketch from over at Cardabilities #22.

It has been a while since I have used a brayer and I remember when I first bought it along with a few of the Kaleidacolor ink pads to do this technique. I have stamped 3 butterflies on white cardstock using watermark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then applied a heat tool to the butterflies and have then rolled the brayer on a kaleidacolor berry blaze ink pad and rolled it over the white cardstock. I let the ink dry and then wiped the butterfly images to remove the ink. I love this technique and would like to thank the Annabelle Stamps blog for making this this weeks challenge - it is great redoing old techniques!
