CAS Mix-Up August 2022

My supply of sympathy cards was depleting fast so I got a new stamp and die set called Dragonfly from HoneyBee to make a few cards.   I'm sending this one to CAS Mix-up where the prompt is 'emboss resist'.

The dragonfly was white heat embossed on PTI paper and inked with Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet Distress Inks.  I thought it was a little too plain so I cut a SSS stitched circle from the center - thank goodness it fit around the ink blending - and popped it up.  The set has sentiment dies so it was heat embossed, cut and inked with Wilted Violet.  

While I had the stamps out I made a few others that will probably pop up on my blog at some time.  You'll have to come back to see. ;)
