Papertrey May release!
a beautiful day in Minnesota

simply irresistible challenge


This month's challenge for the senior design team at Papertrey Ink was to use a resist technique of some kind in our projects. I chose to do the clear emboss resist technique (it's one of my favorite techniques!) with a little bit of a twist.

I stamped the solid butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses set with Versamark ink onto one of the patterned papers from the Father Knows Best 6x6 patterned paper and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. Next, I brayered the brown dye ink over the whole thing. Where the butterflies are embossed, it resists the ink, and you can see the patterned paper design underneath! Some of you might know this technique as the Joseph's Coat technique - really it's just a spin on clear emboss resist!

Make sure you stop by the other senior designer blogs to check out their take of the challenge!
