This month the technique is emboss resist, one of my favorite techniques. I embossed both the background and the poinsettia using clear embossing powder on Whisper White Thick cardstock. (I think that the clear embossing powder stains less than the white but I haven’t actually done a thorough investigation.) For the poinsettias, I inked them with a makeup brush and Balmy Blue ink before I die cut them. The background I used a makeup brush and Highland Heather ink.
