Resist Techniques on Christmas Card 2011 Number 2

I went a little technique crazy with this card.  I watch a ustream show with Tresa Black featuring various resist techniques.  Love, love, love it.  You can check out her video here

To create the card the first thing I did was emboss flowers on the brown background paper.  Then I used my blue ink pad to "wash" over the paper.  After cutting out my squares of Graphic 45 paper, I distress the edges and attched them to the card base.  On the cranberry cardstock I clear embossed the Christmas tress.  I then dry brushed white acrylic paint ove the image and used a baby wipe to clean off any excess paint on the tree image.  I used Glitter Glitz gel to add a bit of bling and then attached that peice to the card.  I used the same technique on the star.  To make the banner I used my cricut art philosphy cartridge to cut the shapes, used white ink to stamp the sentiment and my white gel pen to add the details.   

Well, I hope you enjoy looking

Until next time,
