MIM #135 Layered Emboss Resist

Make it Monday this week is a super technique by Heather Nichols, 
Stamp, Emboss, and Resist.
The trick is to use a full stamp image to stand out when the ink resist is applied.
Lots of Halloween cards to do, so I chose the pumpkin from Scentamentals.
The first layer is a script wood block background stamp from Stampendous, I hardly use.
It's a bear to maneuver, but I figured the dots from Polka Dot Basics would cover.
Then comes the resist part. The pumpkin is stamped randomly, and clear embossed. 
When ink is rubbed around the stamped image, the emboss resists. 
How fun is that!
The glittered pumpkin is from Shape Up Series: Pumpkin Sections.
The pieces were die cut from Shrink Film, baked and then glittered.
(Remember the technique from The Stamp-a-Faire?)
glittered rick rack border die
Sentiment from Trick or Treat.
