Brandi's Resist stamping technique

Want to incorporate stamping into your scrapping more? I’ve discovered an awesome technique that will do just that. Resist stamping.

To achieve the look on my layout you will need clear embossing ink, clear embossing powder, ink in your choice of color(s), a heat gun, and of course your choice of stamps. I chose to use a white background because I wanted my “waves” to appear white.

Start by stamping your image with the clear ink and embossing with clear powder. Once you have the design you want completed, with a damp sponge, rub/dab ink over the embossed design. The embossing will “resist” the ink, leaving the white to show through. Blend your ink colors to achieve the look you desire. A similar look can be created with watercolors or walnut ink. This is a great technique to use when needing a certain patterned paper that you can’t locate.
