Craft Stamper Reminder - Resist Technique


Are you playing along with Craft Stamper Take It, Make It challenge this month?  We're looking at the resist technique - stamp and heat-emboss your image, then colour with inks.  The embossing will resist any inks that are washed over it.

I inked the flower up with Versamark Onyx Black and stamped it three times, bending the stems a different way each time.  If you're quick enough, you can get embossing powder to stick to dye ink long enough to be able to emboss.  Then out came the Barn Door Distress Ink, some water and my best sloshing brush - Slosher Shirley Strikes Again!!

I masked the flowers and flicked some Peeled Paint over the panel, then mounted it offset onto a wider black panel, then onto the card.   The sentiment tag is from Craftwork Cards.

So come over and play, it's not as difficult as you think (and you could win a prize, get published in Craft Stamper AND be a future guest designer - what's not to like?).

  4. Sloshing looks so good on you. You have been one busy chica - saw your Union Jack tag over at WW and love it. These blooms are oh-so-cool too (but then you knew I'd say that right?) Did you make the stamp?
