I do hope you all survived Doris & your properties are safe & sound. Gosh didn't it blow & rain? The rain kept waking me up in the night - so a bit sleepy when it was time to get up, & I had a rubber stamping workshop to do.
The photos to show you today are from a technique I have been revisiting, in order to demonstrate it at my HSNW club next month. The technique is - resist. HSNW has some new members who have never done this technique so that is the reason I am showing it.
I decided to create a sample of the versions that I have chosen by using tags (labels). It is quite a nice way to actually make a techniques keepsake as the tags can be held together with a book ring.
These few tags were cut from glossy card - actually it was some 6x4 photo card I had. The inking & stamping works well on them - but embossing causes the shiny part of the card to lift from the smooth side. So not a brilliant finish. But I will still show them as it is good to show what doesn't work as well as what does work. I think a smooth coated card may have been better. The thing with shiny or glossy card & paper is that the colours are far more vibrant.
This group are the ones done on plain card. You can see that the 2 black finish ones do not show the underlying colours quite so vibrantly as on the glossy card versions.
I am thinking of revisiting this technique with our clubs as well as it is quite a log time since with did this.
Well, here we are at another weekend so I am hoping you have some great things to do & it does look like Doris has left us. Have a great weekend, have fun & stay safe.
'Bye for now.
