This week on Studio SN on You Tube: Distress Stain Resist!

Resist techniques are great because they add color and a little something tactile to projects. Of course, there’s also an element of surprise when you first put down some color and see the pattern revealed!

Today’s segment is a Distress Stain resist, using a heat-embossed background. Distress Stains work beautifully for this because they have such rich color, and because they’re a cinch to apply—the dabber top makes it so easy.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Distress Stains: Picked Raspberry, Evergreen Bough from Ranger

Cover-a-Card Spatter stamp from Impression Obsession (and Mega Mount)

– Embossing ink, white embossing powder, heat tool

Jet Black StazOn ink

Chandelier stamp from Penny Black

– Cardstock: White glossy, orange

– Mini mister and water

– Black and white ribbon

– Tissue

– White blank card

Here’s how to make it:

1) Stamp and heat-emboss the Spatter design on white glossy paper. Apply Picked Raspberry Stain to the paper. Note: I did two applications.

2) Blot away excess ink.

3) “Ink” the Chandelier flower stamp with Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough stain. Spritz with water and stamp onto a piece of white glossy cardstock.

4) Clean stamp and then use StazOn to stamp on top of the Stain-stamped image. Trim and mat on orange and white cardstock. Glue to the resist background.

5) Glue orange cardstock to the card front, leaving a narrow border at the top and bottom. Mat the resist-stamped paper top and bottom with white, then glue to the card front. Wrap with black and white ribbon.
