I’m going to demonstrate how to do the resist technique in stamping and you’re looking at couple of images that I have just done so I’m going to take you through the steps of making this image. The supplies you need for this technique will make or break your project because certain inks and certain papers don’t work together well. The paper you use has to be a glossy paper and you will to experiment. Some glossy papers will soak up ink nicely and others won’t and some papers will work with some inks and others won’t so. I can only say that you have to experiment with this to begin with. The next thing you need is a stamp obviously. This one is an Annie Griffin stamp by All Night Media. You need a dye ink, pigment ink won’t work. This is that I’m using is Marvy Matchables; you will need a water mark ink. I’m using this one by Versa Mark, the brand doesn’t matter but you need a water mark ink. And you will need a brayer.
Now I have to just tell you that this brayer is not the best kind. You can get brayers in craft stores that are bigger and softer and fatter and they work better for this technique but I don’t have one so this will have to do. And optionally you might want to use a heat gun although you can omit having a heat gun if you do already have one. Now the first thing you do is kind of obviously, kind of coat your stamp with this crista mark ink. Then place your stamp on your glossy paper, press and remove so you can’t see it very well that’s way it’s supposed to be. Now at this point you must allow your Versa Mark to dry. If you want you can heat it with a heat gun and that will dry it quickly or you can let it—air dry but you’ll have a smeary mess if it’s not completely dried.
The next thing put your glossy paper with the stamp on the surface that you don’t mind messing out and coat your brayer with ink like that. Then the smear may not work too well on the camera but at that point you go over your image with your brayer like so. That’s working quite nicely. So there you have it. That’s how you make use of the resist technique. Now I’m going to put this on a card, so I’ll show you the card in a minute. So here is the card I’ve made using that stamp image with the resist technique. I’ve done tried a little bit of leering. I’ve added a little butterfly islet and this along here is another stamp. And on the inside I’ve stamped the, I think that’s a hydrangea, I’ve stamped it in the same dye ink.
So here’s another card I’ve made using the same stamps but this isn’t the resist technique, it’s dripped to paper. This is ribbon, this is ribbon, and this is cut with a punch. And on the inside is stripped of ribbon and a little punch shape. So those are my cards, if you’ve enjoyed this video please visit my blog its scrappingbydesign.com.
