Can't Resist Cornish Heritage Farms

I had to try this resist technique with the new Kim Hughes "Nature's Silhouettes" set from Cornish Heritage Farms. I started with a piece of glossy cardstock and stamped Hero Arts wallpaper background with Stampin Up River Rock and let it dry.

Next I inked up the tall leaf stamp with Ranger Clear Resist and stamped it on the glossy paper. I used a heat tool on it to make sure it was dry before moving on to the next step.

The third step was to brayer Stampin Up True Thyme over the entire piece. The ink doesn't stick to the leaf stamp because of the resist pad so the leaf stamp really jumps out. The key to make this ink pad work is to use glossy paper! I've tried it with non-glossy paper and it just doesn't work. I really like how the background stamp still shows through the true thyme but doesn't detract from the large leaf stamp.

Finally I wanted to stamp a greeting on my image so I pulled out my Timber Brown Stazon pad and a retired greeting from Stampin Up. The stazon ink will stamp over the resist image.

The finished card.

As always, thanks for stopping. I hope you all have a great week.

This is beautiful. I'd never heard of actual "resist" ink - just VersaMark. What's the difference between the two? Thanks!
