I've scheduled this post because at this very moment I'm enjoying the Stampin' Up! Annual Convention.
This is one of the cards we made at this month's technique class. The technique is Emerging Colour, a type of Emboss resist. For this card, I stamped a background on Very Vanilla cardstock using Very Vintage wheel and Vintage Vogue stamps in shades of blue. Next I embossed the Medallion on top in clear embossing powder, and finally, brayered over it in Brocade Blue ink. It's a great effect, and the Medallion stamp is perfect for this technique. This card reminds me of blue and white China....
