Ink Blending with Resist Technique

Hi everyone! When I saw the solid flower stamps by Karin Joan I could not wait to try the resist technique! It is really easy to do and it involves a lot of heat embossing. By using different colors of ink and embossing powders, you can get really different looks which I love.

To showcase what different looks you can get, I created these 2 cards. The technique is the same, just the colors are different. For each card I will explain what I did and the colors I used.

For the one with the black flowers, I stamped everything using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I chose 3 different colors for ink blending: Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio. As I felt the bottom of the card needed to be a bit darker, I also ink blended Distress Ink Black Soot over it. And because the flowers are heat embossed, these will resist the inks, so the areas will stay nice and clean. Once you are done with ink blending, you can take a dry cloth and go over the flowers to remove any access ink.

For the one with the white flowers, I stamped everything using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white pearl embossing powder. Then I chose 4 different colors for ink blending: Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed. As I felt the bottom of the card needed to be a bit darker, I also ink blended Distress Ink Black Soot over it.

To add more interest to both of the backgrounds, I splattered water over it and picked it up with a paper towel. For the sentiments, I stamped them with VersaMark ink on black cardstock, and heat embossed the white embossing powder. For some final finishing touches, I added Nuvo Drops in a couple of places.

I really hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
