Resisted Extreme Boarder - cQc#20

Arielle has a fun color combo this week for her Colour Q color challenge. The colors are Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow and Whisper White. All of the colors are from Stampin' Up!'s Bold Brights color family and I typically do not use much of these colors, so this was fun!

I recently got the Extreme Snowboard stamp for free from Sale-A-Bration, and I thought these bright colors would go great with this stamp. So I embossed the snowboarder onto Whisper White Card stock using Versa Mark and White embossing powder.

I then took the Seeing Stars stamp set and the snowflake stamp from the Holiday Blitz stamp set and stamped all around the snowboarder in all of the ink colors from this weeks challenge. The ink doesn't stick to the embossed part, which is called embossing resist. I then took a damp baby wipe and lightly smeared the stamped images a little bit.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black and is from the retired stamp set It's Your Birthday, which is fitting, since today is my Birthday! So I made a birthday card on my birthday, but I wouldn't say that I made it for myself, it just doesn't look like a card for me!

Thanks for looking!
