I have a special treat for you today! Along with my SOTM artwork, I have a fun & easy tutorial for you on making your own resist paper. You've probably seen the kraft resist papers from Tim Holtz, or resist papers from another company, but what if you want a different style? Stamps to the rescue! This easy technique, called emboss resist, has been around in the stamping world for as long as I have and that's a long time... and when I say easy, I mean it's easy enough to do entire 12x12 sheets for scrapbooking as well.
Now, on to the artwork! I chose to make a card this month, using my current favorite color combo for guys: green, blue, and orange (specifically Topiary, Pacifica, and Sunset).
Not to fear if you don't like the random color on my paper - you can do this with a single color as well. Want to use lighter colors? Use White Daisy or Colonial White for your base instead of kraft.You need just a few supplies to do this technique:
- stamps - I used Potential, the March stamp of the month set
- Versamark ink
- clear embossing powder
- craft tray
- craft heater tool
- ink pad(s) of your choice
- sponge tool or other applicator
