Simply Irresistable ... By Hels Sheridan

Goodly Morning! Today I have a card to show you that has a fab resist technique on it... namely, the Multi Medium resist technique. I have used Distress Stains and Studio 490 stamps to create the card... and here's how I made it:

The card base is white... and the resist will show you whatever colour your base cardstock colour is. I spread some Multi Medium - Matte flavour - onto my craft sheet and dipped the large script stamp into it... making sure it had a pretty even coverage. This was then stamped onto the card stock... remember to wipe the Multi Medium off your stamp immediately... we don't want any yukked up stamps :O)) Dry the card - you can use a heat tool ot let it air dry naturally.

Smoosh Distress Stains onto your craft sheet and lightly spritz with water - so it goes into a beaded look. Dip the card into the Stains mix, dry, re-dip if you want to... and on mine, I dabbed some Fired Brick onto the craft sheet, lightly tapped the card onto it and the lightly spritzed with water... then heat dry. You will see the Stains go blotchy... this look is entirely random... it will look different each time you do it... but... a tip I have learnt... if you want to make more of the same coloured cardstock, for extra stamping onto/embellies/messages etc... when you put the Stains onto your craft sheet... copy the amount you put on and make another patch of inky Stains... so you will have a very similar look :O))

I added a border stamp along the bottom... using Archival Ink to stamp this... and a sentiment using Black Archival. The butterflies were stamped onto more Stained cardstock and then cut out and edged with Walnut Stain. I then got the little mini sewing machine out and did some rather...erm... scruffy... stitching around the edges to add to the shabby look of the card.

The Ingredients I used are:
Studio 490 Stamps: It's More Flower Art, Botanical Art, Live & Make Art, Sentimental Art
Distress Stains: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Fired Brick
Distress Ink: Walnut Stain
LinkArchival Ink: Vermillion, Olive, Coffee, Jet Black
Idea-ology: Game Spinners, Long Fasteners, Washers, Mini Brads

Thanks for looking... have a goodly day!

Hels this is gorgeous, no louder GORGEOUS!
I could roll about in those colours LOL.
I'm so pleased all the bright colours are out in stains now.
That's a great new technique.
