Emboss resist with cling film sponging.

Today I have tried a technique a little bit different to my normal emboss resist.
You stamp in Versamark, then heat emboss with White embossing powder,
then instead of traditional sponging, use scrumpled up cling film to apply
the layer of ink on top. It's a bit more of a grungy effect than ordinary sponging.
I saw this on Louise Welsh's blog

Here's what my card looked like


The stamp set used is Endless Wishes,
and the sentiment is from Ornamental Pine.
Colours used are Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana,
Sentiment stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.
Two thin strips of Silver Glimmer paper are the only embellishment.
I love this technique - and will try these in different colours.
Watch this space!......
