Orante Blossom Resist

I am so happy with how this card turned out! I tried the Reverse Joseph's Coat technique to create the main panel, using the En Francais and Ornate Blossom stamps. This is such a COOL looking technique, and the card is even more gorgeous in person, if I do say so myself.

I made the main panel by first stamping the En Fracais background stamp in Pacific Point ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Next, I stamped the Ornate Blossom stamp over the background image with VersaMark ink. I embossed the Ornate Blossom with clear embossing powder and sponged ink over the embossed image, first with Bashful Blue, then Marina Mist and Pacific Point on the far edges. I absolutely love the result! It's hard to see the shimmer in the photo - it shows up much better in real life. Have a great day!

Stamps: En Francais, Ornate Blossom
Paper: Pacific Point, Shimmery White
Ink: Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, VersaMark
Accessories: clear ep, heat tool, sponge daubers, Pewter jumbo eyelet, Crop-a-Dile, Bashful Blue satin ribbon, Basic Pearls

Jen, this is gorgeous. I don't have the Ornate Blossom Set, but do have the Medallion Stamp and I bet it would look good with that one too. Your choice of using shimmery paper is a really good suggestion.

Beautiful card, I don't have the Ornate Blossom stamp, but like Katie I have the medallion and think I am going to try this technique with that stamp.
