Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hey y'all!  Cat here with a little 'pictorial' for you this week!  Hope you enjoy! 

I believe the name of this technique is called "Acrylic Resist"  It was a technique I learned awhile ago and have not used it in forever!  So thought I'd share it with y'all today while I get to make another card with it too!  :D 

Ok, let's get rolling!

First, gather some goodies  together!  I have picked several to do, because when I do it with acrylic paints I like to have different pieces to save for later use.  In this pic I have 3 or 4 cuttlebug folders, and GKD cardstocks in White 120 lb, Black Onyx, and a coral color. 

Still gather my goodies to use!  :D 

Here I have added various paints to the embosed cardstocks.  Some of paint is acrylic and some distress ink paint dabbers.  Let dry completely!  you can use a heat gun, just do it on both sides so heat wont make it warp.

more painting!  :D

This piece has Tim Holtz distress paints on it.  Just waiting for them to dry! 

I decided to use this piece to make a card with.  At this point...sand!sand1sand1!!   But yes, that is what I was doing at this stage!  Now, at this point, after you get done sanding, you will need to dust it off pretty good.  And this is where you would take a stamp ink pad and kinda swipe or sponge onto the raised areas.    I chose not to add that step on this one because I liked how the white lettering looked.

In this picture I have my piece on top that I'm gonna put together  a card with.   You can see some of the others underneath there...(my pic has disappeared to where I show these better!  Ill take more to show and get uploaded later!) 

Im showing this to show that I stamped onto acetate with StayzOn ink to do an overlay on my background I created.

TaDa!!  all done up!  Ive added the sentiment.  Did some layering on it to give it more pop.  Added ribbon and flowers and also stamped out a few acetate butterfly and have added those too!

Ok, there ya go!  I hope you will give it a try!  I so love looking at everyone's work, it truly inspires me!! 

Go forth and Create!  AND have fun in doring so!!  :
