Resist Technique Day 5

Spring is starting to come with the daffodils showing their colours,  even though the weather is still 'stormy'. This week on odd occasions there has been sunshine coming through my craft room window - its amazing how different it makes you feel.

The resist technique is a process where colour is applied and the image resists the colour.  For my card today I have used the detail clear embossing powder.

So here is my card

These are the things you will need

A4 sheet of white card, plus a scrap of white
Biege patterned paper from Craftwork Cards Butterflies on Parade
Scrap of patterned paper for back layer
Piece of black card
Versamark ink pad
Detail clear embossing powder
Clear Magic stamp JGS409 Floral Vine
5mm white pearl self adhesive stones
Green stickles glitter glue
Cosmetic sponges
Heat Gun
Olive green with white dots organza ribbon.

The method:-

1 Take the scrap of white smooth white card and stamp the image using Versamark ink pad
and cover with the detail clear embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.

When the powder has melted the card colour can tend to look a little discoloured,  but when coloured with the chalks this does not affect the overall image.  The embossed design tends to pick up the chalk more strongly.

2  Take the cosmetic sponge and the chosen colours of the chalks and wipe the sponge over the chalk and then lightly blend over the stamped image. 

Use the colour randomly

3  Trim the panel to the size you want, and the cut a black matt for the second layer and the scrap of patterned paper for the third layer

4  On the image there are O shapes on the top of these I placed the white pearls.  The  centres of the flowers and the small dots around the big floral section have small drops of the green stickles glitter glue.

5  The base card is the A4 sheet of white folded in half and a strip  measuring 2'' cut from the front edge of the card.

6  I cut the 8'' x 8'' in 2 so that the inside outer edge and the front panel would be covered.

7  The panel is attached to the front and the I tied a piece of olive ribbon with white dots, this was tied in a double dot and a separate bow of the the same ribbon was added to the top.
