Another Resist Card

After creating my first card for the Lily Pad challenge, I remembered how fun it is to use the resist technique, so I just had to make another one! This time I used the beautiful hydrangea stamp from Hero Arts. It's always been one of my favorites.

I first white embossed it onto a scrap piece of white card stock. I then blotted three distress ink pads in Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Mustard Seed, directly onto my craft sheet, spritzed them with water and smeared the hydrangea piece into the ink. I love doing resist this way because you never know how it's going to turn out.

Resist #2 by bdengler4 (Barb)


I used some patterned paper and one piece of colored card stock, stamped with Old Letter Writing. I added three buttons and string to complete the card. I'll be sending this one to my sister and her hubby to thank them for the fun time we had out on their boat the other night.

I'm back to work tonight after a nice long break. I was lucky to have beautiful weather all week and lots of time to craft!

Thanks for stopping by and have a good start to the week! :)
