Quick and Blue

Evening blog friends, welcome to my little corner of crafty happiness.  I have finally discovered a technique that's quick!  Joy and happy dance.  In fact I had my central image so fast it was a bit of an OH! moment.  Sometimes we need something quick and although I have kept this ultra simple I am quite pleased.  She looks a bit ghostly but it does have a certain something about it..........

 I have been wanting to try the emboss resist technique for a while and when I saw it on SSS the other day I thought now I'm going to give it a go.  Originally I was going to use a few colours but once I started applying DI Salty Ocean over the embossed image I kinda got carried away.  She looks a bit like an old negative.  The stamps are PaperArtsy Winter Wonderland Plate 6 and the sentiment is from PA Bloom set.  I used white Stampendous emboss powder and mounted on a blue linen embossed foil card from Craft Creations.

Quick card, quick post.  Thanks for dropping by.   No challenge over at Altered Pages this month but lots happening as they prepare for 31 Days of Halloween.  Worth a look.
