Master It Monday – Resist Technique

Ever seen a card or project and thought how do I do that?  Well we are going to try and share some general crafting techniques on the blog on our Master It Monday posts.  Today we asked Annette to show us how easy a resist technique is and she created this bright sunny card.Resist Final 1.1 - 1 (2)By Annette Allen
We asked Annette how she came up with the idea for this card, this is what she said. “This project was inspired by a printed photo I had seen recently in a store. I love color stamped backgrounds. Using the resist technique this really makes the stamped images pop and come to life”.

Materials Used: Chameleon Pens: Sky Blue (BL3), Spring Meadow (YG3), Purple Grape (PR4), Deep Violet (VO4), Crimson Red (RD4), Summer Sun (YL2), Bubble Gum (PK3) and Seville Orange (OR4), WOW Embossing Powder (White Pearl), Ranger Perfect Medium, Embossing Heat Tool, Misti, Paper Smooches: Blossoming Buds stamp set, My Favorite Things Cross Stitched Circle Die-namics, White gel pen, Neenah white card-stock and foam adhesives.

Make card from card-stock 5” x 5.5”.
Cut another piece of card-stock 4.5” x 5.25”

Resist 1.1 - 1

Stamp images to cover entire 4.5” x 5.25” using perfect medium. Add embossing powder and set using heat tool.

Resist 1.2 - 1

Using your Chameleon Pens it is now time to make this stamped background come to life. Infusing each time you color a section of this background for 5 seconds. Depends how light or bright you want the color. In some parts I infused for 10 seconds each time.

Resist 1.3 - 1

Using Chameleon Pen Sky Blue (BL3) color the negative space in.

Resist 1.4 - 1Using a gel pen highlight the image on outer edges.

Resist 1.5 - 1

Die cut circle and stamp sentiment using perfect medium, add embossing powder and set using heat tool.

Resist 1.6 - 1

Using Chameleon Pen Crimson Red (RD4) color directly over sentiment adding full color.

Adhere background to card base.

Using foam adhesives adhere die cut piece to card.

    Beautiful card. Thank you for the detailed instructions. Do you use any other paper besides Neenah?

      Sarah Many alcohol based papers give excellent results we use Bee Paper and other team members use Xpress it. Did you know you can also practice on copy paper, HP laser color printer paper works brilliantly too!

    Gorgeous…love the pretty, pretty colors and a wonderful technique…not sure what I would like to see as I love all techniques…maybe using these pens to color on vellum, as that is one of my favorites!
