More Color Resist

Here's another card I made using the Color Resist Technique. I'm loving this technique right now. There's something therapeutic about rubbing ink on a card and watching the color change in just the right spots. I talked about this technique in this post

This is longer card than an A2 card and it isn't too tall. It would fit inside a check size envelope.

To make my card you need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.

Tempting Turquoise card stock
Basic Black card stock
Whisper White card stock
Basic Gray ink
Versamark ink
Tempting Turquoise ink
Upsy Daisy stamp set * retiring 5/31/12
En Francais stamp
clear embossing powder
Heat gun
Beautiful Wings embosslit
Big Shot
Sponge Dauber
Glue Dots
Snail Adhesive

Adhere the Basic Black card stock to Tempting Turquoise card base.
Stamp Daisies from set with Versamark ink. Cover with clear embossing powder and heat.
When embossing has cooled, ink En Francais stamp with Basic Gray ink. Stamp once lightly on scratch paper then on to Whisper White layer.
When ink is dry, remove ink from daisies with a paper towel in a rubbing motion.
Ink edges of stamped layer with Tempting Turquoise ink apply more to the edges and using a lighter touch in the center. Remove extra ink from the daisy with paper towel.
Run Basic Black paper in Beautiful Wing embosslit through the Big Shot.
Adhere the stamped layer to the Basic Black layer.
Adhere the butterflies using glue dots.

If you haven't tried this technique before I highly recommend it. Get out your supplies and have some fun creating something today. Please leave me a comment if you'd like me to create a video on how do the Color Resist Technique.
