JUGS #158 - Technique Challenge

Hi Everyone - for my JUGS technique challenge this week I picked a tried and true one; Emboss Resist.  I am sure you have tried this technique before, but go for it again!  I love the way you can use different colors to get different results.  I used silver embossing on my card!

I used Gina K Designs, Joyful Holiday.  My background I got from Brenda over at Benzi Stamps.  I was so impressed with her card, I wanted to try this fun background, and I loved the end result!  [Thanks Brenda!]  Basically, crumple up a piece of cardstock and re-flatten.  Using distress ink pads with direct to paper, swoosh ink across the page [highlighting the bumps].  Spritz with water.  So, I guess I used 2 techniques on my card.  [2nd one is a freebie :)]

Come on over to Just Us Girls and play along!  We love seeing your creations.

Thanks for stopping by~

So, since you made your background using the direct to paper technique where is the emboss/resist part of the card? It looks like you did the silver embossing on the crumpled DTP background. What am I missing?
