Wikipedia states that...

  " Resist techniques in art use the incompatibility of two mediums to create layered effects with colour and texture..."

In my Technique class we used embossing resist and wax resist. The wax resist gives a delicate look that I love. We ran a piece of wax paper through an embossing folder and then placed it on a glossy card. We place this between some scrap paper and ironed it, to melt the wax on to the card. Then sponged the waxed image with ink. Finally rubbing off the excess ink with a tissue.

These samples show the difference in using Gloss card and Whisper White. The blue one is using Whisper White and the orange one is Gloss card.

This grungy card is created using my favourite stamp set Gorgeous Grunge clear embossed. We then sponged over the card in Crushed Curry and Baked Brown Sugar, rubbing off the excess with a tissue. We then ran it through the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The inspiration for this card came from a very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Teneale Williams. Back in 2015 as a Free product we had a Specialty Designer Series Paper called Irresistibly Yours it was a white paper with glossy images on it. One of the images was scattered stars.
I used the Stars mask out of the Heart & Stars Decorative Masks and stamped over it with Versamark and then Clear Embossed to replicate the Irresistibly Yours paper. We both used Hello You Thinlits Dies. I decided I wanted it raised so instead of trying to pop it up with dimensionals. I adhered two pieces of card stock together and cut the Hello out, it gave it that extra thickness.  I gave everyone a few colour options, Bermuda Bay, wow, Pink Pirouette, sweet, Melon Mambo, fun and Crushed Curry, warm.

So except for these little changes everything else was CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from Teneale. She is such an inspiration.
