Recently a friend sent me a card made with the resist technique. That technique has you heat embossing in clear ink and clear powder (or white) then sponging ink over the top of the image. The embossed image resists the ink so you can buff it off. Your paper gets the color you sponged and your image pops out. Here is the card she sent me:
The Fine Print: Upper card by Judy Thomas, used without permission, but she sent it to me so she should know that I might use it for a nefarious purpose. Bottom card by me, papers, brads, and cut out by Club Scrap "wild flowers" kit, botanical flowers by A Muse Studio, scrip stamp by Tin Can Mail.
