Tutorial Tuesday - Clear Resist Techniques
Clear Resist ink pad
Variety of coloured ink pads
Ink your stamp into the clear resist pad and stamp it onto your glossy paper. Let dry approximately 10 minutes. You can use your heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Tear a scrap piece of paper, making sure it is long enough to cover your card.
Lay your paper over your card, leaving an inch to ink with your sponge.
Continue to ink your card.
When finished, you are ready to complete your card.
Sponging colour randomly with a sponge is another way of decorating the card.
See what happens when you don't wear gloves?
I thought I would try a little vintage with this technique to show you how versatile this technique can be. When using a photo-like stamp, the image looks like a negative, so to give a nice detail of the face, I restamped the image onto cardstock and glued it on top of the resisted image.
Here I chose to add embellishments. I wanted to keep the "art" look of the card and stamped a flower onto a piece of polished stone paper. After cutting out the flowers, I adhered them down the spine of the card with glue dots.
I kept this as a one-layer card. There is so much one can do to make the one layer card interesting. By adding a sentiment, stamping over top of the resisted flower with a coloured flower, and adding dragonflies, there is enough interest without having to add embellishments.
