Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge - Resist

The new challenge over at theCraft Stampers Take It Make It has been running for a week now, and we've already had some amazing entries. The winner (to be chosen by the DT) will not only win a fab prize from WOW Embossing Powders, but will also have their project printed in the Magazine itself, so how could you "resist" that!!!!!
I've had a play with my favourite IndigoBlu butterfly, stamped in versamark and then heat embossed with clear powder.
Then with a mix of picked raspberry,wild honey and mustard seed distress inks, I brushed over the top of the embossed images, adding a little more picked raspberry around the edge of the butterfly wings.
The sentiment is from another of IndigoBlu's sets, Poppy Meadow, another of my favourites!
So have a go at the resist technique using whatever medium you prefer, inks, watercolours etc and join in the challenge!!!!
