Make My Monday - Challenge 18 - Autumn- Resist Technique



Greetings! It sure feels good to be back in blog land! I have been traveling for a while and though I had my card supplies with me, had no time to apply myself. I was very excited to see the new challenge for Make My Monday for October and was delighted to see that it is "Autumn." Specifically, for this first week, we are to use a "Resist Technique." Yikes!!! I don't know that I have ever used a resist technique. It is, however, what I love most about challenges... growing my skills. So...I did a search and found some really good videos on You Tube. I recalled having a Ranger Resist Ink Pad from back in the days when I did heat embossing (before I burnt a hole in my sofa). That was way before Distress Inks though. Don't you just love how Distress Inks have changed the course of card making? So for my card, I stamped this leaf collage by Northwoods Rubber Company with Resist Ink onto Glossy Paper. I added Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. I matted my image with white and then copper metallic paper. I layered a purple card stock to my white card base, added a beautiful copper ribbon, and my matted image. The sentiment is a portion of an stamp by The Stamp Pad Company, also stamped in Dusty Concord. Embellishments include paper leaves mounted on pop dots, Copper Liquid Pearls, Birds cut from ribbon, Baker's Twine and Raffia. Looking forward to a week of sunshine and warmer weather as we are still without a furnace as a result of last month's flood! Lot's of hot tea helps! Take care. Best, Yvonne

This is a real stunner Yvonne and just love the bold colour contrasts on the card. The resist has turned out well and your embellishments look fabulous.
So lovely to see you again over at Make My Monday and wishing you good luck.

A lovely result with your resist technique. I bet Tim Holtz never realised he was to save sofas getting burned. Thanks for sharing with us once again at MMM. Caz

Such a dramatic colour scheme and it works so well with the main focal image and the ribbon (is the ribbon stamped?). Gorgeous as usual! Thank you for playing along again this month with us at Make My Monday :)
