Resist me not!

This card is for my best friend Sue who is very ill with cancer. I wanted something different for her as my cards are usually very simple....a sentiment perhaps and a stamp, that's it. I'm not a fussy person nor do I have the artistic talents of mixed media, die-cuts and flowers, inky techniques etc. I gained my inspiration from the MFP Stamp blog challenge this week. I don't normally 'do' challenges and I don't normally blog. So here are my challenges on my blog......please don't bother asking!

The technique requires a resist, i.e. clear embossing powder, on patterned paper and then sponging on colour to bring out the image. Easier said than done as I only have about 3 MFP stamps and limited patterned papers and inks! Nevertheless, after much ripping and chucking I came up with something passable which I think our Sue will like. In fact, she is so sweet natured she would say she liked it even if she didn't.  The sentiment, is obviously a clear sticker, which isn't meant to be obvious as it is a clear sticker..... So  rather than try to hide it I highlighted it with the same ink which is Memento lulu lavender -what a fun name!

My last bit of gibberish to express my gratitude and thanks to Coco of http://scrapcocofolies.canalblog.com/ fame who kindly chose my card as one of the winners on the Crafty Individual's challenge, (see post below).
 Thank you also to CI for my prize which I will showcase on this 'I don't blog' blog! :O)
Have a super weekend!
