Emerging Color Nature Card

Good evening! This afternoon I tried another new to me technique. It's a fun spin on the emboss resist technique called Emerging Color. One of the blogs I follow featured a card back in August (see it here) using this technique and I knew eventually I would have to try it. To simplify the explanation, here is a link to a tutorial by Splitcoaststampers. Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques and the emerging color twist is really a lot of fun. The colors are from this weeks Hiding in My Craft Room challenge to use Always Artichoke, More Mustard/Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I hope you like my Emerging Color Nature Card and decided to give the technique a try. Let me know if you do, I would love to see what you create. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful night and pleasant tomorrow!

My Emerging Color Nature Card is entered into the following challenges:
