Try to Resist with a Birthday Card

It is all about resist techniques at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog this week featuring Ranger products. As one for always liking to learn new techniques, I can honestly say that I have tried a multitude. One of my tried and true favourites is heat embossed resist. Thus, for this challenge, I did a Tim Holtz heat embossed stamped butterfly and coloured it with Tim Holtz Distress inks by Ranger.

Supplies: clear and white emboss powders, Tim Holtz emboss ink, Tim Holtz Distress inks, Tim Holtz Distress crayon (Ranger), Tim Holtz stencil and stamp (Stampers Anonymous), Tim Holtz crinkle ribbon (Advantus), cardstock (Bazzill), jewels (Offray), sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

In honour of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog celebrating its' 7th birthday... I made it a birthday card for this week's Happy Birthday challenge.
