Resist technique

I did this card to try a new technique described by Jennifer McGuire on the Hero Arts blog.  Actually I mixed 2 techniques.  Yesterday, she described a technique of stamping with versamark on Glossy CS, then covering the image with  Chalk ink, then you wipe the image to reveal the stamped image.

Today, she uses regular CS (as opposed to Glossy) and embossed the image with clear or white embossing powder.  Then she covers the image with Chalk Ink.
Here is my card:
So I mixed these two techniques.  I used Glossy CS (actually it’s very smooth shimmer CS).  I embossed my image in white, then I covered it with Blue (Cerulean) Chalk Ink.  I also inked the edges of the image a bit with Distress Denim ink.  
Just a little note:  I found that a lot of ink was sticking to the embossed image.  So I took a Q-tip soaked in “Undo” and went over the stamped image – it cleaned it right up.
Here is a side view – you see the glimmer of the cardstock right through the ink:
