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 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!
