Resist Technique

Alas my month as guest designer
 at 52CCT
is over and here is my last card for the month.
What a lovely group of ladies who have been such a pleasure to work with.
Thank you so much for having me.

When I saw this was a resist technique I knew that I wanted to work with
gloss card but which stamp.
I had stamps spread all over the floor of my craft room.
Honestly I didn't know I owned so many. LOL
It is amazing what you collect over the years.
Eventually I decided on this one which is a Heartfelt Creations flower 2 stamp
that doubles up as a poinsettia and cut with Nesties Blossom 2.
Here are the 3 sections before I pop dotted them together.

It polished up so beautifully. I just had to let it speak for itself on the card.
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
There were some lovely cards with Christmas trees on them last week.

Make it Monday - Anything goes
CHNC 2 - Anything goes
CHNC - Use 3 main colours

Thanks for dropping in your are most welcome.

PS The stitches are out but the wound is still covered till Monday.
Will I be glad to see the back of this sticky tape.
Still have to go back for more surgery.
