I’ve been trying out the traditional resist technique using the bella toile background stamp from Stampin Up. I really love this background stamp but it will be retiring from the catalogue at the end of September – I’m so glad I got mine while I could! Love it!
Here, I’ve used versamark ink stamped onto glossy whisper white cardstock, and inked over with pool party ink from the new Stampin Up in-colours…
I used the small heart punch to make a border along one edge, and stamped the sentiment from my whacked friendly words wheel, using black StazOn ink. I then attached it to a white textured card base from my stash with stampin dimensionals to add shadow and accentuate the punched border.
Finally, I inked over one of the punched out hearts with crumb cake ink and attached it to the card with a stampin dimensional. I love the way the edges of the punched heart shape took on more of the ink, giving it a darker edge – so cool!
I was so happy with the way this card turned out – I’ll definitely try this technique again.
Thanks for dropping by today
