Resistance is king!

Hi, hello there and welcome:0)
Resistance is the issue of the week at the Craft Barn and I have made a card:0)

 I know most of you will be familiar with this resist technique but I'm sure there will be some folks who haven't encountered it yet.
I started by stamping the ivy stamp in versmark clear embossing ink and then sprinkling with white detail embossing powder, I heat embossed and then inked and stamped over with distress inks, finally wiping gently with a soft cloth to remove ink from the embossed areas.

The sun is a Crafter's Workshop mask/template mini circles basic and it gets an outing very regularly, I love circles, Tim Holtz distress inks and his sentiments too. To finish I used Andy Skinner's geese, a beautiful stamp, they go gliding silently off into the sunset aaaah, LOL

More and clever examples of resistance crafting at the Craft Barn Blog, I hope you like :0) Gay xxx
I used
Hero Arts Sillouette Ivy
Andy Skinners Back to Nature stamps
Tim Holtz Good Thoughts stamps
White detail embossing powder
Distress inks
This post is scheduled. I'll catch up with you as soon as is possible:0) I'm going away for a short break so may not be back online until about the 20th of March! But I will try to get a connection whilst I'm away, fingers crossed!  Gay x
