Make Ir-"Resist"-able Flowers with Ashley


Ashley here.

Here's a fun technique to do with Technique Tiles: Resist!

First, check out my card.


See those flowers? They were made with the Resist technique.

Here's how I pulled it off:

  • I started with flowers from Technique Tuesday's FUNdamentals of Flowers.
  • Then I used Versamark watermark ink to stamp on them with the script stamp in the Verbose set.
  • Next I covered them with embossing clear embossing powder. I melted the powder with my heat gun.
  • Finally, I took my orange, yellow and red ink pads and applied the ink onto the flowers in a circular motion. That way I was able to make sure there were no definition of start and endings.

Once I finished the flowers, I built my card.

I stamped the sentiment in orange ink. Then I stamped over it with watermark ink and clear embossed it, too.  Then I added those flowers to it.

Super easy and super fun!



Great technique, Ashley!! Such pretty flowers, and they just POP on the white!!

Thanks for the great idea!! I love the tiles and am always looking for new ways to use them!!

Cool. When I saw your flowers, I thought they were cut out of some old Scenic Route paper I have in my stash!! :)

Ash, this is SO cute! I admit to loving doing heat embossing but can you believe I've never done the Resist technique? I must live under a rock I tell ya! Great job girl.

The colors are great! I love the stamping done here. Using a white background made the flowers pop.
