Resist Technique

Saturday, October 22, 2011


I missed my ustream show last Wednesday, it’s been a crazy month and I am sorry I couldn’t broadcast as promised. I will be back for the Wednesday, Oct. 26 show, so if you didn’t get your Fabulously Artsy fix last week, you’ll want to tune in then.

If you watched the last episode of my show, I covered several resist techniques. You can watch the shows on my channel. True to the nature of live shows, there was a blip in the program and my recording cut into two parts. Whoops! Part one and part two are both from the same night, not two different episodes.

Let’s make a card using one of the resist techniques, shall we?


All of the papers shown above are from the Mischief paper pack, with the addition of a square of Garden Green and Colonial White. This pack is not just for Halloween, it’s perfect for fall too!


I stamped the large medallion using Happy Moments stamp set. (Just $13.95!) I used Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.


Using a sponge and Chocolate ink, I buffed color onto the cardstock. For a soft sponged look, buffing in small circles is very effective. Pouncing your sponge results in a different, textured appearance. I also edge-inked the cardstock with more chocolate ink, using my sponge.


Putting the finishing touches on the card by stamping the border stamp in Barn Red ink onto the Barn Red cardstock for a tone-on-tone effect. Sand the solid cardstock pieces to give them a weathered effect, then ink the edges of your pieces. Add a hemp bow and antique copper brads. Stamp a sentiment from Say it In Style stamp set. Finally, add Bronze Glitz Gel to highlight the center medallion.

Don’t miss the next Ustream technique class on Wednesday, Oct. 26th at 7 pm. (Pacific Time). More irresistible techniques, this time we’ll take a look at what’s underneath. And I promise I’ll actually be there this time.

Hi Tresa,
This is a technique I haven't used yet; think I'll give this a try. You make it look so easy. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us.
BTW, I changed my blog background as well as my header. I think now, I won't be so scared to change it with the season changes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
