Another Saturday has come around, and once again it is time for 'Our Creative Corner' Challenge.
This week we have the very humorous, very unique and incomparable Lisa (You Made me Ink) as our hostess, and her Challenge will be a popular one; 'Resisting with a Twist'
Here are the FOUR requirements...
1.) Resist Stamping (examples: Versamark, Embossing powder, gel, crayon)
2.) Describe the technique you used somewhere on your post.
3.) Also, include Wings (Anything with wings or wings by themselves)
4.) This can be a card OR a project (all are welcome!)
Initially I thought butterflies... as most would, but as luck would have it my precious grand- daughter came to visit, and she was dressed as Tinker-belle!
And an idea was formed; inspiration is everywhere you just have to open your eyes.
It is as different from my canvas (previous post); as chalk is from cheese, but what can I say.... multifaceted is a word that comes to mind.. Mmmm... yes well.....
Wax-Paper Technique as a resist.
I used the ordinary super-market waxed paper.
Tear off a piece larger than your card, and squish it up in a ball, to make creases in the wax, the more you squish the smaller your pattern, then gently smooth it out, do not remove all the creases.
Now sandwich this wax paper between two pieces of card stock making sure your waxed side is facing towards your chosen piece for the Bg; I have used Rangers speciality paper.
Next step use your iron on a medium setting and press down onto the paper, hold for a short time, continue in this vein until you have released the wax onto the paper.
Check that it is working by lifting the paper and you should see a pattern developing.
Then you can colour on top with your inks, and as I have said in my last post.... Magic happens!
Your face automatically breaks into a smile, as each time you do this technique the result is always different.
Now you have a Bg to do with as you please.
Tinker-Belle was coloured in Copics, then I fussy cut her out and mounted her on my Bg.
The wings were White embossed on Acetate, I cut them out too and attached them at the base.
I added flower soft to her skirt for texture, and pearls for a necklace.
And she looks beautiful and Scarlett will love her.
We would love you to join us in this Challenge, we may not have prizes to seduce you with, but what we do have is inspiration and tutorials, and who knows you could be Lisa's choice as Top Talent and be our Guest Designer for one week, now how does that sound?... not enough, well what if I include a visit to your blog, tempted, then wait there's more.... we will leave some love too. xooxx
