Agapanthus Cluster Resist



This beautiful "Agapanthus Cluster" stamp is from Stampendous, and was purchased at Eclectic Paperie. The sentiment and bigger brad was purchased from my friend, Mary Ann. I thought these flowers would look really pretty using the emboss resist technique, so I used my VersaMark to stamp the image, then used Crystal Clear embossing powder from SU! to emboss. Next, I sponged with Orchid Opulence classic ink (SU!) over the embossing. The ribbon is May Arts from StarLitStudio, and the designer paper is Gypsy 6x6 pad from BasicGrey.

Thanks for visiting!

Ohh...I guess RESISTANCE was futile for you and those gorgeous flowers. Ever since Jenn made a gorgeous card with this stamp, I want it bad. You are not helping, Rose Ann.
