SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #64 R is for Resist Technique

Hello and welcome snarky peeps! I'm back from vacation and perhaps now I'll be able to catch up on commenting. (wink wink) As Edna is showing us in the awesome graphic above, our new challenge at the Sisterhood is to use the Resist Technique on your card or project. There are a boat load of video tutorials out there on Mr. Google, so if you haven't tried this before, never fear, just Google it! LOL!
Here's my card:

and the inside:

No snark on this card. It's all warm and toasty feely. I heat embossed the pine bough in white EP, then sponged Pine Needles DI over it, making it darker around the image. Then I smooshed Iced Spruce DI on my craft mat, spritzed with water, and flicked that on the panel with a paint brush. 

Now it's your turn to try out the resist technique! We'd love to see what you come up with. Just link up at the Sisterhood so we can admire it! Need more inspiration? Then please visit the blogs of my Sistahs and our Guest Designer, Helen, and be sure to leave them some bloggy lovin! Thanks for hanging out!

  1. Nope, no snark, but this is beautiful! I really like that sketch you used. The big circle piece behind the embossed panel is so eye catching. Love the warm natural feel to your papers and design, too. And your emboss resist pine is wonderful!

  2. No snark??? Are you ok??? Seriously, all joking aside this one's a beauty, Chris. I love your colour combo so much. Thanks for being a super sistah, Jo x

  3. Gorgeous card, love the resist technique you used. love the flicks of colour. great take on the sketch.

  4. What a gorgeous Christmas card! (I have refused to make Christmas cards this month.) The branch is perfect for your resist sponging.

  5. Gorgeous card, Chris!! Thank you so much for showing us how beautiful my branch stamp from Pines Fir Yew looks with this technique! ♥

  6. Love the color range on your card - and much more!

  7. Beautiful, for a Christmas card, just teasing it is gorgeous.

  8. ok, i really had to do a double take b/c i was totally expecting something more snark-centric, lol! but when you've got such beautiful ingredients AND mad stampin' skillz... you can do something as lovely as this to just to keep us all guessing, eh?! ;) thanks for sharing your awesome take on stephanie's gorgeous sketch with us at JINGLE BELLES! ♥

  9. No snark here, but a very cute card! Love that pine bough!

  10. What a beautiful color for your resist design ... so very glad you got sketchy with us at jingle belles.

  11. Awesome possum! Love your take on the sketch and the resist challenge!
    Fab take on the challenge sistah!

  12. There is lots to look at on your card, but my eye is drawn to the white branch on the gorgeous background. It seems to add a touch of winter, perfect for my neck of the woods, as being in Sydney, we have another month of cooler temperatures before it warms up in spring.


Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
