Hard to Resist!

Yesterday I had another fun skype play day with Alison.
This time we picked The Stampman's challenge which is a 'Resist Technique'.
I had seen this very cool tutorial on HeroArts.com so we both set to work following the video instructions.
I actually brought the hero arts leaf cluster stamp with the prize money I won from the 'anything tim' challenge.
















I pretty much used the same colours as the original but some stamps had to be substituted as I didn't have them! Good excuse to buy more I reckon lol
The phrase is Penny Black, and the background lines are Tim Holtz.
I backed the image onto another piece of water colour paper that I had used to soak up the inks from my walk and wiggle stage, perfect as the colours were obviously matching.
Then the whole thing was mounted onto a kraft coloured card, and finished with a bit of lace and some prima flowers.
Why not go check out Alison's, She used different stamps completely!

I played with this technique after watching that brilliant tutorial some time ago but yours has definitely turned out better than mine. I love the effect you've got.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Stampman this time.

This is fabulous, Minxy... I spotted this tutorial some time ago and it was the basis for a TIO challenge one week... you seem to have mastered it very well
