Happy Birthday in Emboss Resist Technique

 Hello friends.  I have a new card to share today.  I made this one with a new technique I tried for the first time, emboss resist for the CAS Mix Up challenge.


I have used wet embossing, stamping, die cutting and sponging.

 I used the Altenew Grid Stencil and stamped my Versamark ink pad over the center part and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I sponged Speckled Egg DOI over part of the embossing for a background for the lovely flower spray from Taylored Expressions Bursting Blooms.  I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with SU Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green Blends.  I cut it with the matching dies and snipped the top section off so it would fit on my card.  I embossed the sentiment from a retired SU set and cut it into a banner shape.  The blooms and the sentiment are mounted with foam tape.

I will also link to MYNBUS challenge as this is the first time I have used the Grid Stencil and the Bursting Blooms stamp and die set.
