CASE Study Challenge #42

Good day to you, sweets!
We've got a big reveal of the new Muse at the CASE Study today! So exciting :)
As much as I'm sad to see Sarah Martina Parker go, I can't wait to find out how you're receiving the new fabulous lady. Or Muse for June is Jill Foster!!
If you haven't been to her blog yet, I urge you to do so. Jill rocks stamps & ink like it's nobody's business! I thought that after a month of embracing pretty papers and embellies of all sorts, we could get a little messy for a change. So grab your inks, heating and distressing tools, for the fun has arriveth! :)
Here's Jill's inspiration card, that I chose for this week:

LinkLinkOh how I love this emboss resist technique! You know that I don't play with my tools nearly enough, so I'm really happy for this month. It gives me a BIG kick in the butt :)

To create a background like mine, you first need to white emboss the image, and sponge/brayer over it with the ink(s) of your choice. Then overstamp it with a background stamp (not too obtrusive), and gently remove the ink with a baby wipe in a couple of places (optional).

Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, white; stamps: The Craft's Meow (Celebrating You), Glitz Design (Distressing); ink: Distress Ink (Pumice Stone, Frayed Burlap), Memento (Rich Cocoa), Versa Magic (Oasis Green, Turquoise Gem, Aquatic Splash), VersaMark; white embossing powder; edge distresser; glitter glue: Reeves; string

These beautiful Fuchsias, are a part of The Craft's Meow new release. The set is called Celebrating You and is designed by my ridiculously talented friend Nina Brackett. TCM is our fabulous sponsor this week!! Woohoo :)

I'm playing with the CPS220 sketch:
