Hello and welcome...
Today I've used the 'resist technique' for this card

I started with an A4 hammered white card base, scored it in half then cut it to make a 5"x7" base card

I then masked all 4 sides of the card and stamped the French Rose Background Stamp using Perfect Medium clear embossing pad  then sprinkled 'True White' embossing powder over the image, removed the excess powder and heat set

Using 3 Distress Oxide ink pads (with separate blending tools), 'fossilized amber'/'worn lipstick'/'spiced marmalade' I added colour to the image.  I then 'polished' it all with a paper towel and gave it a gentle spritz with water

I carefully removed the masking tape and stamped a sentiment from the 'Amazing Sentiments' Stamp Sets with a StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad

Insert with verse 

I also used another of the sentiments from the same set to stamp a verse for the centre of my card

Using a stencil I inked one corner of the insert with the same 'worn lipstick' distress ink and the other corner with 'fossilized amber' distress ink

I also used a corner punch on all 4 corners of the insert
