MFT July Ingenious Inking - Resistance is Futile

It's time for this month's MFT Ingenious Inking DT Challenge! We are challenged to create a card/project using a resist technique - one of my favorite techniques!! :D

I used the Emboss Resist technique to create my background. I stamped the Lace Background onto a piece of Smooth White CS with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I blended Bubblegum and Banana Split dye inks over it using an ink blending tool, then spritzed some water to get a softer look. After it dried I cut it with a stitched rectangle die from Blueprints 24.


I layered three butterflies - the bottom one was die-cut with Flutter of Butterflies - Solid Die-namics and the other two were die- cut with Flutter with Butterflies - Lace Die-namics. The bottom one and the top one were cut from a piece of CS that I inked with Pure Plum dye ink to create an ombre look.
For the sentiment I used Brushstroke Birthday Greetings Die-namics, and the oval frame was die-cut using Pierced Oval Frames Die-namics.


You will find a list of the DT members participating today's challenge on the MFT blog. Hop around their blogs to see what they have come up with for today!
