Final Week for Resistance at Unstampabelles

Gosh - people must be very busy! We have only two entries over at Unstampabelles,  and only a week to go for you to resist in some way without using a stamp! As long as you hold something back, or stop something from happening and then tell us how in your blog you meet the challenge!

We seem to be having summer resisting arrival and winter resisting leaving at the moment - it has been cold and windy lately, but interspersed with very warm windy days. We want summer to get here but the growth of grasses has been extraordinary and once the warmth arrives so does the fire season! However, it is nice seeing such a lush green landscape - here is one to look at before you see my card for Unstampabelles.

Bridport by Dan Fellow's

I started by smearing Versamark onto the recessed part of the embossing folder and embossing a piece of watercolour card. Carefully removing this, I added clear embossing powder onto the card and heat embossed it - it is the raised pieces which are not sealed by the clear EP.

Next I splodged TH Distress ink onto a sheet of ascetate and spritzed it with some water

I then lay this face side down over the embossed piece and pressed the spread ink into the paper with a roller - the clear embossing resists the ink but the unembossed section (raised section) does not so it absorbs the diluted ink.

A quick rub over with a sheet of paper towel to mop up the excess and another sheet of watercolour paper to clean up the rest (to be used later for something) and hey presto!

Mounted and a die cut added for another Christmas card!

It makes such a pretty background. 

You too can be resistant and add your object to our challenge!
