Call Me Irresistible

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.

Botanicals for You, Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration

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.

Botanicals for You is a wonderful stamp set, because the sentiment can also act as the main image. There are also more coordinating sentiments and some floral images that go with it.

    What a great Easter card, Buffy! Love that sentiment – Just for You – for an Easter Card. I spent time looking through my stamps, too, for an idea for an Easter Card: flowers? butterflies? What words?

    I came across my stamp set Blessed by God–with the crosses; I chose the flowery one. Then looking for the words, I came across the ‘love’ in my Hello Life stamp set. Some cards, I just embossed in gold; some I stamped w/ink and flowery background paper. All with the same message: Love on that cross.

    Thank you for sharing!! Love that technique, too.
