Ir(resist)ible technique

Good Morning, my friends!
 I want to show you how to create a little box with an older technique called “Resist with napkin varnish”. 

I started with cutting my template, it’s a Sizzix Die *Box & Card* and stamped the two beautiful flowers from the Da Vinci Set. Make sure you use permanent ink, as this is going to get wet!

I colored the images with Koh-I-Noor pencils Mondulez and some water. Then I carefully applied the napkin varnish and tried not to get too much outside the image, since this area will not take any color after the application.

I applied different colors of Distress Ink and spritzed & flicked with water. After distressing the edges I assembled my box and tied a little tag around, the word “SEEDS” is computer generated.

 I just love how vibrant the colors of the flowers stand out!

Ready for summer and some new flowers?

You can find the flower images right here at the Rubber Dance Stamps shop!
