I just can’t resist a good resist technique. I’ve always loved them – waxed paper resist, crayon resist, emboss resist, rubber cement resist…the list can go on and on. It’s like magic, I think. You have a white canvas, and you start adding ink and – hey, presto! – there’s the image.
Here’s a quick resist I worked on over the weekend. I used one of the Sale-a-bration stamps (another thing I can’t resist!) – Botanicals for You – for the image. I stamped the sentiment and two small flowers in Versamark, then embossed with clear powder. I used Shimmery White card stock, because it holds up to water better than Whisper White. Watercolor Paper would also work well, but I get a better stamped image on Shimmery White.
The only thing left was to add ink. I loved the look of Hello Honey, Tangerine Tango, and Garden Green, so those are the ones I added first. The colors were great, but really weren’t dark enough to make the embossing stand out. So I added a little more color. I added a bit of Bermuda Bay, Real Red, and more Garden Green. I love the way it looks. It reminds me of a sunrise.
Since I finished it on Easter Sunday, it kind of made me think of that first Easter morning. And I kept thinking, “Jesus died just for you,” while I was making it. So – even though I’m a day late, here’s my Easter card! I added some punched flowers, a few rhinestones, and some Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape to the card for a little more interest.
