Kraft Resist

I know I have some retired Stampin' Up! embossed resist paper, but do you think I could find it? Noooo. Just as well my friend Alz sent me some to play with. I wanted to try colouring it then stamping on it. I used sponges to get the coloured background, then, as the Kraft Resist paper was French, I stamped in archival ink on top with the Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings stamp set. I really liked the depth that created and the way the stamped images seem to float on air....

PS: You could make your own Crumb Cake resist by clear embossing on it. Must try that another day :)
PPS: If you are reading this, Alz, thank you again for being such a generous friend! I will get to use the titles and embellishments you cut for me out of Pacific Point soon, I am sure - they are just begging to be put on a page!!  xx

Gorgeous tag, Susan.
My computer died a month ago & I lost all my links, contacts & sadly it appears I have lost art work made during the pre-blog years. Stuff I can never get back unless by some stroke of luck the hard drive is still okay in the old machine & it is only the motherboard that failed me!!!
My name is Minibook Pixie, making minibooks is what got me inot art in the first place & apart from 3 which i turned into PDF documents, i have lost all 20 :( :(
