Resist with Distress Inks

Another fabulous technique for using Distress Inks is resist. I stamped the ferns in clear ink and then heat embossed the images in clear embossing powder. The remaining images were stamped and then I applied the Distress Inks. The green ink was resisted by the embossing, leaving the floral images white. I couldn't decide white butterfly I liked better, so I made one card with each. The smaller butterfly was stamped and cut out while the larger one was punched out of cardstock. Each were coloured with the Distress Inks.
