THE RESIST EFFECT
Over at Scrap Africa you will find a bunch of examples of resist effects for scrapbookers and card makers. Hop over to the BLOG to be inspired by all the lovely examples.
This is my take on the challenge:
I have used clear embossing ink to stamp the large background image.
I then covered the "wet" image with America Crafts Zing clear embossing powder.
I then used a heat gun go heat set then embossing powder.
I completed the background by colouring the background with Ranger distress ink and a blending tool. I then splatted a few small drops of water on the background to make the little white dots.
I used a stamp from the BIRTHDAY LETTER SEALS set from WHIMSY STAMPS to stamp the "birthday wishes" image. I stamped the image in a matching blue to keep to the monochromatic look and feel of this card. I punched out the stamped image and then layered it onto a pretty doily, cut from the Lifestyle Crafts/Quickutz die-set, NESTING DOILY CIRCLES. I used the same colour distress ink to colour this doily.
The whole background was then layered onto a dark blue cardstock to round it off nicely.
You will be in the draw for random prizes if you upload your creation....
