Welcome to Technique Blog Hop… This month we are sharing the Resisting Technique, and I had so much fun creating projects with this technique.
If you arrive from Tonya, that you are on the right track 🙂 But if you are here first, you can continue blog-hopping to the next blog until you make the loop. You won’t miss this hop for sure! There are 12 more CTMH consultants participate in this blog hop sharing their awesome projects to inspire you.
I use the Watercolore Resist Technique to create my projects today. It is just so fun watching the images start revealing when we add the colors on the embossed images. It is magical 🙂
First is project is art frame. I cut Watercolor Paper in 5.5″ x 7.5″ big to fit in 7×5 frame. You can use any size of frames, just cut the paper as big as your frame. I stamped the butterflies and sentiment from Your Beautiful Self stamp set (I used all of the images :D) using VersaMark™ Ink Pad and Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder and heat them using Craft Heater. Then I tape the paper down using blue painter tape and started adding the Watercolor Paints using wet Paintbrush Set. For the butterflies I added the purple and pink using the medium round size brush, and then the background I used lightest blue using the medium flat size brush. And then I fast-dried the paper using Craft Heater and with a wet big flat brush I washed the paper from left to right with motion. It gives the blending look of all the colors, you can see there is some shades of purple too. One more time I dried it and ready to be put in the frame.
I also made these cards using the same technique. For the card above I used the My Mother (US/CA) stamp set. On a piece of Watercolor Paper, I stamped the flowers and leaves with VersaMark™ Ink Pad and added some Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder, then heat set it using Craft Heater. I added the light pink on the top and did the gradient wash on it. For the sentiment, I stamped it using Thistle Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and Pixie Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. The border paper is from Penelope Paper Packet. And I added some Sequins Gold Assortment and Treasured Puffies. I added the papers using adhesive and 3D foam tape.
And for these cards below, as you can see the same technique also 😀
On these cards, I used Someone Special stamp set. Don’t you love those big gorgeous flowers? I stamp them using VersaMark™ Ink Pad and added some Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder on Watercolor Paper. Then just add some Watercolor Paints on them using wet Paintbrush Set. I stamp the sentiment using Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad after the papers is completely dry. I used 12″ X 12″ Black Cardstock as the base mat. I added the panels on the card bases using adhesive runner.
I cannot stop myself this techniques is so much fun 😀 I also made some cards using the watercolor resist technique.
Resisting Technique is a technique that you first emboss the images with embossing powder, then add some colors using dye-inks, markers, even watercolor paints on it to reveal the embossed images.
