A fun technique!

I have another card for Winnie & Walter's ReRun #14 challenge, this time being inspired by Lydia - she used the most fun technique!  I can't believe I've never tried it before!  She calls it layered resist.  She had some stunning cards in blue, so I went 180 degrees and used warm colors:

supplies: white, Simon's sunshine, and a gold shimmer cardstock, leaf from Simon One with Nature outine leaf, scattered straw, fossilized amber, carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon, and festive berries distress inks, W&W Big, Bold You sentiment stamp, In a Word Hello cutaway, and Audrey's Cutaways scalloped rectangle

Briefly, you start with a white piece of cardstock, and clear emboss your image.  Then sponge the entire panel with the lightest of your distress inks.  LET IT DRY! (this is the hard part!) or the embossing powder in this next and following steps will stick where it shouldn't!  Then clear emboss a few more images.  I used a mask each time.  Again, sponge the panel with a slightly darker ink, and repeat and repeat and repeat.  I used 5 different yellows to reds.  Since this is distress ink, at the very end, I splattered some water across the surface, and then blotted it up.  LOVE how this came out!

Lydia did a fancy cut for her design; I simply cut a scalloped rectangle from the center of my stamped panel, then framed it, added my sentiments, and  popped it above what was remaining.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

What a stunning card Lin - well worth all the waiting between layers. Love the gold die cuts over the background, which is beautifully 'framed' by the gold cut out.
