Oh happy day! It's Friday! :) I sat down earlier and just wanted to play a little with Celtic Heritage from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
I've been seeing lots of fun emboss resist cards out there so I figured I'd try my hand at it. I've never done it before because I'm a "neat" stamper. I don't like unfinished edges. Even distressing stresses me out a little. Haha. But everyone's gotta live a little, right?
The clover is embossed in white and then sponged over with some spring moss pigment ink. I've learned a few things though through my trials... (1) A paper towel works so much better than expensive sponges and (2) Definitely ink off first to avoid ugly splotches of ink and harsh lines.
Other tip, don't try paper piercing once the darn sentiment piece is already adhered with dimensional adhesive... I had a scrap piece of paper that I used to cover my oopsies. Thankfully it works ok, I think... ;-)
