Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Melissa Robinson.


There are a few steps to how I did the stamping for this card.  First with sponge daubers, I sponged different colors of ink on a scrap of White Daisy Cardstock.  Next I embossed the butterflies (using Versmark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder).

Resist Stamping Technique
Then, I sponged overtop of everything using Archival Black Ink and wiped off right away with a Kleenex.  Last, I trimmed the butterflies leaving a small border around the outside.  I am so pleased with how this technique turned out on this card and even better is that it will be flat to mail!
