Enjoy the Journey
I have a pretty simple card today using a pretty cool technique. It's called Paint Resist. It's just like the traditional Resist Technique or "Ghosting", except you use paint instead of Versamark ink. I inked up the fleur de lis background stamp from the Verve Bountiful Backgrounds set with Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabber. I stamped it several times on a piece of white cardstock. Once the paint dried, I rubbed Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters Distress ink onto the piece and then wiped it with a cloth. The paint resists the ink and creates this distressed-looking, textured background!
I stamped the sentiment from Bountiful Backgrounds onto Kraft cardstock and added score lines on the edges. I die cut a heart out of black cardstock with the Jotted Heart Die and embossed it using the Tropical Paisley Sizzix Embossing folder. I also applied some Pearl acrylic paint to the edges of the heart.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!
