Peaceful Petals Resist #2

Resist technique is a way of describing the resistance of ink on images or cardstock. Resist is the theme of this week's class and we are concentrating our creativity on the Peaceful Petals stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalogue. The stamp set is really versatile although it comes with a thank you and thinking of you sentiment.

Card number 2 for the class is using crystal effects as a method of resisting ink.  This is the card made using Whisper White as the base with another piece set on top:
I have used two of the floral images and the leaves on a stem from the set in this instance. The largest flower is stamped in Perfect Plum (stamped off once on scratch paper first), the flower bunch is stamped with Raspberry Ripple ink (which is retiring soon) and the leaves are stamped in Old Olive. I then coloured each of the stamped images in with the colour that they were stamped with except the large flower which I coloured with Pink Pirouette because I wanted it to fade a little into the background.
Once the ink had dried I coated the flower bunch and the leaves with Crystal Effects. After the Crystal Effects had dried, I used a dauber and Soft Sky ink to smudge the background areas to add the faintest touch of blue.  The Crystal Effected areas resisted the ink.

The final steps were to punch an oval with the Extra Large Oval Punch, stamp the sentiment in Perfect Plum and then to add the small butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (stamped in Raspberry Ripple and smudged with an Aqua Painter, punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhered with a Glue Dot).
