Multi-color Crayon Embossing Resist Tutorial

Happy Memorial Day, Friends!! What did you all do today? Well, my husband left for his business trip this morning and initially, I was going to stay at home and maybe make some cards, blurf, etc. . .but I decided to visit a town about 15 minutes away from where I live.

It's funny because we've lived in California for 4 years and we've never visited this particular town. A few weeks ago, we had to drive my daughter there to take a writing test for college and we were quite surprised how many shops, restaurants, and stores there were in this town and it was only 15 minutes away.

In my younger days, I was a bit more adventurous but as I grew older, I don't know what happened to me. I sort of became comfortable staying in one place, never venturing out. . .less curious about the world. I think this happens when your life becomes a routine and the need to do anything different from the norm becomes less important.

Anyway. . .to make a long story short. . .my daughter and I spent the day in this town just looking around, shopping, and eating lunch there. It was fun. We even found a store that was going out of business and everything was 50 to 80% off! How fun!!

Okay. . .now to my card. I made this card this morning. It was quite fast and easy. My goal was to keep things simple. I think I managed to keep the card simple enough. What do you think?

I created the background using the Multi-color embossing resist technique and the tutorial is provided below. It's a tutorial I created about a year ago. It's not a new technique but if you want to try out my version, scroll down to the tutorial below.

I created the flower using the SU Fifth Avenue Floral set using the same technique but cut out the flowers and layered them.

I actually have a lot of cards to post. . .I was a good girl yesterday and made a bunch of cards and I'll post a few of them tomorrow.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!

Card Details:

Stamps: SU Fifth Avenue Floral, Designer Labels
Paper: SU Pretty in Pink, So Saffron (I think)
Ink: SU Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
