Hi! It’s Sue here at Card A Day Challenge Blog.
We’re so happy that you’ve stopped by.
This month, we’re highlighting techniques shown by Jennifer McGuire.
The technique that I’ll be focusing on this week, is what she calls Distress Resist.
You can watch Jennifer use this technique here. It’s like heat embossing without using embossing powder and a heat tool (emboss resist). Instead, you use just the Versamark, which acts as a resist. What I learned, is that this technique works better with glossy paper and you definitely need to apply a lot of ink to reveal the resist. Actually, in some cases, I applied the ink directly to paper.
This week, I’ll be showing you some of my cards.
Let’s get started. My first card is for Clean & Simple Sunday. Here’s my card.
I used Impression Obsession’s Circle Fusion background stamp with Versamark ink on glossy paper. I waited a bit to be sure that the Versamark was dried before I applied distress ink (twisted citron, mermaid lagoon) with ink blending tools. HINT – use a lot of ink! The resist shows up best with a lot of ink. I cut the panel down to 2 1/8” x 4 ¼” and matted with a mid-gray strip. I die cut the sentiment from the same mid-gray cardstock using Papertrey Ink’s Wonderful Words: Thank You die. I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.
Thanks for visiting.
