Atc Swap - Resist

For my resist technique this time I used a candle and rubbed it over a piece of baking paper, scrunched it up, uncrumpled it, laid the atc over the baking paper wax side up, and ironed. Wasn't sure if anything would happen, but some of the wax transferred onto the card. I used ripe permission and mustard seed distress inks to colour the atc.

Then I stamped a new to me image which I picked up a couple of weeks ago, in black stazon and added a few washi tape images.

For technique #2, I gesso'd a wooden heart and added a thick layer of media clear crackle.

Once totally dry, covered with white antiquing cream which fell into the cracks and wiped the rest away.

I covered a piece of white card with black gesso, stamped a script image with versamark, added clear embossing powder and heated to create the resist.

Next I painted over it with DecoArt everlasting chalky finish paint and wiped away the access to reveal the embossed script.

Added a piece of washi tape along the bottom.

Then I attached the heart to the background.

I tried to capture this to show that the script is embossed and not just stamped on the background.

And a close up of the heart.

All products for this atc were from the DecoArt range.

Brilliant!! I still haven't started mine (don't want to miss out though) as I have been completely lacking in ideas...

Who's clever with the candle wax and baking paper?! What a cool technique and what a great background. Love the crackly heart too. Two absolutely cracking ATCs.

You are so talented and so dang smart. That first technique really is outstanding. Wish I could be a fly on the wall in your craft room and watch your experiments. Then I would fly right home and try them for myself. Wait a minute, you told us what you did, now all I have to do is give it a go!!
