Happy Monday morning! Today, we are wrapping up World Card Making Day Weekend with Jillibean Soup! What better way to wrap it up than to share this resist stamping technique shared with us by Jillibean Soup design team member Summer Fullerton.
Watercolor Paper (purchased at Target for under $3.00)
Jillibean Soup Stamp
Top Boss Clear Embossing Ink
White Embossing Powder (Summer used Stampin' Ink, but any brand will work.)
Tissue/Kleenex (not pictured)
Optional-Metal Die (Summer used flag dies from Paper Smooches.)
Stamp your image using Top Boss Embossing Ink on the watercolor paper top with white embossing paper. Note: Summer has tried this technique with clear embossing powder. Wile it seems this would work, the image tends not to be as vibrant when you use white embossing powder.
Over saturate your paint brush with water and dip paint. Thin out the paint using lots of water. Then, brush over your embossed image.
Before your paint dries, use some tissue paper to soak up the excess paint. Dabbing up the excess paint with tissue does a couple of things. It sops up the excess water and keeps the paper from excessive warping. It also gives the acrylic paint a watercolor effect.
Repeat the process as needed until your space is covered.
Once the paint is dried, you can use a tissue or a finger to rub any excess paint from your embossed areas. This allows your image to stand out against the painted background.
Cut your stamped image into your desired shape.
Summer used her Paper Smooches metal flag dies to cut out the stamped images for her layout.
Place the metal die over the stamped image and used washi tape to hold in place. Summer ran hers through a Cuttlebug, but any machine will do.
The end result is a fun stamped image ready to adorn your next layout.
