Anybody up for a challenge? Why not head over to Inkurable Stampers this month (you still have time!) and try your hand at some resist techniques with your stamping - Sarah always has great prizes on offer ;)
And here is what I have created for my resist technique entry this month. It is a card - yes it has another recessed window feature - I really am loving this technique :)
**Edited to add: This was chosen as the Australian Winner. Thanks Sarah :)
So I have used two resist techniques on my card. The first is stamping with versamark and clear embossing, then inking with distress inks. Hopefully you can see two layers of resist with this technique - there is the white flourish in the top corner, then after I had applied a small amount of distress inks, I embossed a couple extra flourishes nearby (which are a lighter shade of red) before applying more distress ink over the top.
The second technique was using a white crayon to highlight the little birds in the grass and the dragonfly wings before distress inking over those as well. The DI are barn door, fired brick and walnut stain on Bazzill white, mounted on Bazzill black. The stamps are my very new Paper Artsy stamps - Hot Pick sets #1004; #1005; #1006.
The beautiful shiny rose is made with Ten Second Studio metal, backed in cardstock which has been inked and stamped as well, even though you can't see it. The petals are Paper Artsy flower die cut, which matches the flower from the Hot Pick set. You might be able to see some of the features added to the rose in this image....
Thanks for stopping by, and why don't you join in the fun at Inkurable Stampers this month?
