Emboss Resist Patterned Roses

On today's card, I did a little emboss resist with the "Pressed Flowers" roses, but instead of embossing them on plain card stock, I used some of the Theresa's "Wings of Hope" Digital paper, which allowed the beautiful pattern of words to show through...
First print your piece of patterned paper or use regular DP. Stamp the roses in Versamark, cover with clear embossing powder, and heat.

Stamp your leaves in olive ink over the roses, no need to mask as the embossing powder resists the ink, they will look like they are under the roses, love that!

Now sponge pink ink over the roses, rubbing into the crevices to make the rose detail pop out, leaving the words shining through. Wipe off any excess ink.

Last I stamped over the roses in black and mounted it on Black Onyx and Passionate Pink mats, with a White Pure Luxury base, measures 5 1/2" X 8" to fit in a large envelope. Greeting is from the new "Inside and Out" Free with three set! (I finally got this lattice punch I've been admiring on so many of your samples, and I like it a lot!) :)
Have a wonderful day, thank you for taking the time to visit me!
