2016 Topic 7: Resists
Hi everyone Emma Godfrey here.
Tonight I'd like to share with you this evening with a post about resists.
Step Two: Sprinkle Infusions over the different areas. I used A Bit Jaded over the open dragonfly, Emerald Isle over the dotty dragonfly, Lemoncello over the swirly dragonfly and the large flower, and Are You Cerise over the tiny flower. Spray lightly with water to activate the powder.
Step Three: Blot the piece of Smoothy with some kitchen towel. This softens the colours. Dry thoroughly before the next step.
Step Four: Apply a Versamark ink pad through The Crafters Workshop Mini Basic Circles stencil, then heat emboss using WOW Clear Gloss Ultra High embossing powder. Repeat this step a second time - this will give a much smoother finish to your windows.
Step Five: Use Cut'n'Dry foam and Archival Ink Jet Black ink pad to fill in the background. Wipe off any excess ink from the embossed circles. I like that the ink doesn't quite hide all of the original stamping.
Step Six: To accentuate the edge of the windows I used an Extra Fine White Sharpie pen to add a dots all around each of them.
I really enjoyed making these cards. I was originally going to colour in the stamped images with paint, but the Infusions were just asking to be played with - and I love the finished effect of using different colours in one project. I was a little disappointed that the colours appeared slightly duller once the two layers of embossing powder have been added. Maybe next time I'll try it with some translucent embossing paste instead?
This is gorgeous Emma, love the fun/quirky colourful background using the Infusions and Clear Embossing Powder. The windows look great accentuated with the white highlights. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us. ~Gillian
