Tuesday Tip…You Can’t “Resist” This One!

Emboss Resist

1) Stamp and
heat emboss your image. Allow image to cool.
2) Apply ink
directly to the paper (over and around the embossed image) using a
sponge or brayer.
3) Wipe the embossed image with a tissue to
remove the excess ink.

Variation: watercolor resist

1) Once
you’ve embossed an image, scribble around and over the image using a
Watercolor Wonder Crayon, and blend using an Aqua Painter. Wipe the
color from the embossed image, and allow to dry completely.

Variation: Wax Paper Dye Ink Resist

To do the wax paper technique cut a piece of wax paper slightly
larger that the area you are working with. Next, crumple the wax paper
up and then unfold.

Then, lay the wax paper onto Glossy White Card Stock and cover the wax paper
with a sheet of paper. Iron the papers, using the hottest setting, for
no more than 5 seconds.

Peel off the wax paper and then apply dye ink. The wax acts as a
resistant to the ink forming a textured look.
