Psalm 91:4


Mondays are the best day of the week, for those of us who
can't do without PTI's Make It Monday.
Today Ashley showed us the coolest technique called
Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments.
Such a great way to make the sentiment stand out!


A friend is in the hospital, and this card goes to her.
Betsy's Year of the Psalms: March furnished the sentiment I used on
a Mix & Mat: Scallops die.
First stamped with Dark Indigo, then versa mark and clear embossed,
the image is moved down slightly, and clear embossed again for the
shadow effect. 
When the sponge inking is applied, the shadow pops!
My sentiment block is on a die cut and sponge inked 
Cover Plate: Center Stage.
The feathers were fussy cut with a few popped up with foam.
Loved this technique, and can't wait to do it again!
Thanks, Ashley!
