Hard to resist


The challenge this month was to make any piece you want as long as you used a flower in the reist technique. Not a technique I've done much of in the past so I thought I'd swot up on it but found there are quite a few different ways to do resist, so I went with the clear embossing powder way. I punched a flower shape from a piece of scrap card and used this as a stencil. I coloured through with my Versamark pen and the added the embossing powder, then over the top I added loads of different toning chalk inks. I really like the subtle effect this technique gives and I think it's one I'll be using again in the not to distant future.


I sent my piece to Louise, hope you like it mate.
