Technique Blog Hop - Resisting Can Be Fun!

Welcome to the CTMH Technique Blog HOP!

Featuring: Resisting Can Be Fun!

This month we will showcase the Resist Embossing technique! 
It really is a lot of fun and the result is beautiful. 

If you arrived here from Cathy's Blog
you are on the right track!

I have been using our Regatta paper pack to create this month, and decided to use the leftovers to create a birthday card. The rose background is leftover from the Regatta kit. So love that Pomegranate red! The blue strip is the piece I embossed. I must confess....that I am unsure if this is a resist technique. (LOL. I think I was the only one resisting.) 

I used the Botanical Background Stamp set (D1645) to stamp and emboss the leaf pattern. 
Happy Birthday was stamped with CTMH Pomegranate ink and popped up to add dimension. This is a simple card, and was fast and easy to create.

If you are new to embossing or "resist embossing" give it a try!
