Resisting colours cards.
This weeks assignment was to make something with the resisting colours technique, I like playing with colours and have made a few cards before using this technique so this time I made 2 cards.
These cards are pretty easy to make, even for beginners and don’t take much of your time.
For both cards I used a white base card, 1 with a blue mat and 1 with a pink mat. Then both an other mat, this time a white one and stamped them randomly with baby stamps in matching colours
For the sentiments of both cards I stamped smaller pieces of papers with Versamark, for the blue one I used water colour paper and for the pink one I used DCP paper. I added clear embossing powder on both of them and melted it with my heat tool so the embossing powders would be resisting colours.
For the blue card I added the ink with a brush and for the pink card I used a blender tool to ad the colour. I then sprayed some diy shimmer mist on both to give the sentiments some extra sparkle and shine. Sadly this is not visible on the photo’s
Tip! I make my shimmer mist myself, I pour water or rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and then I ad Perfect Pearls in it.
You can also use Nuvo Shimmer Powders, or Body shimmer powders as long as it contains a lot of mica.
I also add a few little gemstones to the bottle to help mixing the liquid. Just shake it before you use it.
Behind the sentiment layers I added mats in the corresponding colours again, added some foam tape to give some extra dimension and placed them in the middle of the cards.
After that I added a few Nuvo drops in similar colours and my entry for this week was done.
In the coming weeks my college DT members are all using this resisting colours technique, be sure to check out their creations.
I have a list of the materials I used at my HA Blog, It is written in dutch with more details in there for when you want to know more and all the measurements. To translate it to english or any other language you can use “Google Translate”
