Bodacious Magic Layers

Bodacious Magic Layers

This technique is also know as embossing resist. Personally, I like the magic name better 🙂

1) Cut Whisper White A: 2″x3″ B: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
2) Cut Certainly Celery A:2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ B: 1 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
3) Cut Apricot Appeal 4 1/4″x 5 1/2″, Fold in half.
4) Stamp Whisper White A with small flowers in the Bodacious Bouquet set, using Apricot Appeal ink. Stamp leaves in Certainly Celery.
5) Overstamp this piece with Versamark with the spiky flower.
6) Sprinkle clear embossing powder and emboss.
7) Brayer Certainly Celery ink when embossed flowers are dry.
8) Rub off the piece with a sponge or tissue, glue to matching Certainly Celery piece. On the right side, do a one-hole-bow with grosgrain or organdy ribbon.
9) Stamp Whisper White B with the small flower, stem and leaves. Affix to matching CC piece.
10) Faux Eyelets: punch with small hole punch in a piece of scrap, then punch with large punch. Punch corner holes with larger punch and glue punchouts over these holes.
11) Stamp bottom half of card base with large flower.
12) Optional: Use word window punch in bottom right hand corner and stamp sentiment through window on piece of white scrap. Glue and position scrap behind window.
