TJ more GESSO resist

See, I made many more of these wonderful backgrounds 
with gesso and other mediums. I have a pile to share
more cards with you!

So today I took one of the "gesso resist" backgrounds
and an embossing folder. Had to try and see how this looked.
So I took this flower folder and embossed the paper.

The embossing folder is by Crafts-too-Dutch
 and I found it here.
With a blending tool I added alittle ink
to the raised flowers to make them pop.

And here you see the finished card:

The finished card is made with:
Club Scrap Navajo and Circles papers
Michael Strong butterly stamps
Tim Holtz sentiment

The butterflies are embossed with
copper embossing powder and colored
with distress ink and a blending tool.

The small butterfly is very dimentional.
Stamped twice and with a foam tape added together.
On both butterflies you find little sticky gemstones.

Have you had a look at all the cool techniques,that you
find on the Techniqu Junkies Artist Effects CD?
You find them all listed here with a sample card:

 Have a creative day!
