Emboss resist blended Persian Motif Card

There's something almost magical about the emboss resist technique, the way the design appears when you do ink blending over it. It reminds me of the magic paint books I got as a child, where you painted on water, and then a picture magically appeared. 

This card I have used the Altenew Persian Motif stamp set to stamp an all over design in two triangular patterns on the top and bottom of the card, leaving a strip in the middle where I am to put the sentiment. 


I stamped two of the flowers from the stamp set with versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.


The ink blending I used Distress inks in pretty jewel colours and then stamped a sentiment which would go with my die cut 'thanks' sentiment. I trimmed the panel down, so it would leave a little strip on the left hand side, to do a strip of black and white washi tape. 


I have made a video on how I made the card, although it is a very simple card, depending on what colours you use, the effects are really lovely.
