Emboss Resist

This card uses a technique called "Emboss Resist".  I heat embossed the rose with white embossing powder, then sponged ink over the image.  After rubbing the ink off of the white embossing, this was the result:
I sponged the background and the edges of the image with a little Desert Sand ink.  I'm entering this card in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this week!
It's been a really busy (and fun) weekend - yes, another post will follow! This was the result of a little "me time" today.  I've also posted this over at Make It Monday.
Have a great week everyone!
