R is for Resist ~~ Challenge #64 at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!!

Another fine challenge brought to you by The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!! R is for Resist!!! There are a lot of resist techniques out there.....crayon resist, glue resist, watercolour resist, chalk resist, versamark resist, emboss resist and I'm sure there are more. I decided one resist technique wasn't enough I tried two. The first one is Emboss Resist which I found on Stamp TV

To start off with I didn't have clear embossing powder with me at the cottage because I thought it was already here but I had white which is what I went with, in the video at Stamp TV memento inks were used with daubers, guess what I left home? yup the daubers and my coloured memento inks.  Well as I'm used to not having all my equipment here I used TH distress inks and bought sponges at the $$store when we were in town.

Since the sun hasn't come around to the deck yet I took the cards to the break-wall to take pictures.

Okay now on to the second resist technique,~~ Versamark Resist 

Sorry the picture isn't as good as it should be, my camera kept shutting off "yapping" I need to change the batteries, but I kept plugging away. I am not sure who or where I saw this technique obviously I didn't save it,  I started with shiny paper, using another silhouette stamp from the Artful Stamper, I stamped in versamark watermark and allowed it to dry a couple of minutes then brayered TH tumbled glass distress ink over and over and over the image. Because it was very flimsy I layered it on a scrap of white and one of green and elevated it on the Walmart patterned paper and on a base. I thought it needed a little something more (as always) so added the silver dazzlers thin line border stickers from Hot off the Press.

Wow you made it to the end of a picture loaded post I hope you will try a new Resist technique, tell us what one you used and add it to the SoSS blog.  check out which resist techniques the rest of the design team have done.

Thanks for visiting and have an awesome day!!!

Awesome techniques, Barb! Love your gorgeous cards! I am amazed at how many stamps we have in common - I have the second one in my stash!

I haven't tried Versamark resist... this may be next on my list! These are two absolutely beautiful cards.

You do amazing work for limited supplies at the cottage. WOW

Tracy said...

Both of your cards are so beautiful.
I love the softness of the inks.
I find half the fun of creating is figuring out how to get a certain look without our go to tools :)

For not having a lot of supplies at the cottage, you sure do crank out some amazing cards! These are no exception, very pretty!

Donna said...

Both your techniques work really well, especially with limited supplies on hand.
