Crafty Secrets Challenge - RESIST

Good Tuesday Morning Everyone!!!

Today's challenge over on the SCS Crafty Secrets Forum is to use a RESIST Technique. I decided to use the Embossing Resist for my creation along with my Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas Santa image & Snowflakes from three of their Christmas sets.

There are several RESIST Techniques available in the SCS Resources folder found HERE ... or you can check out this specific technique HERE. GinaK has an awesome gift idea using this techique over on STAMPTV ... you might want to check that out too!

Here is a list of items used for my creation:

Stamps: Crafty Secrets (Vintage Christmas, Christmas Joy, Snow Bunnies)
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green
Inks: Baroque Burgundy, Versamark, Versafine Black
Accessories: Sponge pods, Silver Pearl Embossing Powder, Frima Flowers, Creative Imaginations brad, Hobby Lobby Organza ribbon, Stickles, Baroque Burgundy marker, Prisma Pencil, Gamsol, Paper Piercing Tool
Techniques: Embossing Resist, Paper Piercing

It's always fun to try different techniques and since I am one who can get "stuck in a rut" quite easily, I think I'll go get creative and try a couple other resist techique styles. I hope you have a fun, creative day today no matter what you may be doing. I'm trying to get ready for a Craft Show (Nov. 7th) so I'd better get busy! Enjoy your day everyone and thanks for stopping by!!!
