Here is a card using a technique called resist emboss, I made one for my mum last week but forgot to photograph it.... grrr!!

I stamped the image using the Summer by the Sea stamp set, but I first inked the stamp in versamark and then the basic black and stamped the image onto whisper white cardstock. I then embossed the outline using clear embossing powder. I then coloured the image in, then coloured all over the image with a versamark pen and embossed it again, protecting all the colouring that I had done. I masked the top part of the picture with post it notes and using sponge daubers, daubed all over the bottom of the image using Certainly Celery, next I daubed Mellow Moss around the bottom but leaving a bit of the certainly celery showing, next came Old Olive, daubed that leaving a bi of the mellow moss showing, last but not least comes Always Artichoke, daubed all around the edge leaving some of the Old Olive showing.
Next I masked off the green that I had just daubed and took the masking off the top of the card. Using Bashful Blue, I daubed all over the top part and continued as for the bottom using brocade blue, Night of Navy and Not Quite Navy. Next I computer printed the sentiment as I am making 12 Happy Unbirthday cards and have no sentiment stamps for this. I then tied some Real Red grosgrain ribbon around the bottom and added three brads from the bold brights set. Finally mounted onto real red cardstock and then Night of Navy and there we go all finished.
