Emboss Resist with Smooch - take 2

Because I could get 2 circles out of the A5 cardstock I had clear embossed, I used the Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian Velvet to make another using the same techniques as the first.  This time I stamped on the card as well, which according to my husband looks better than the "blank" one.  I informed him that it is known as 'white space' and he looked at me (in a kind of "are you serious" look) and went "it's just empty".  Ok, each to their own.

This one uses a Haus Designs Value Pearl/Clear Bead Pin as my embellishment.  I have added a drop of Glossy Accents to the end of pin so that it no longer has a sharp tip.  I'm really loving this emboss resist technique - it adds so much character to the card and best of all it is quick and easy!  I'm going to have a go of this technique on a gloss cardstock and see how it turns out (my base cards were gloss, but the embossed card was matt finish).

Today is the last day to enter the Haus Designs pin giveaway - make sure you link up a project that you think a pin would look good on!!  At the minute you have a VERY good chance of winning!!!
