Resist Embossing at Make My Monday

I was a bit dubious about the theme this time as I have never had much success with reesist embossing, and previous attempts have usually ended up in the bin. This time though I am reasonably happy with the results.
I used a leaf stamp from a recent SSS kit which I embossed in white. Then I brushed on Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides and gave it just a gentle mist of water. While it was drying I cut a frame using some Tonic Studios dies. When itwas totally dry, ie the next day I coloured in the leaves with Spectrum Noir pencils to make them stand out a bit more. Two butterflies from SU Papillon Potpourri set stamped with the same two inks and Wink of Stella'd, and a sentiment and the card was complete. I hope to see you all joining in at Make My Monday.
