Altered Pages and Yasumoto Arts are cross promoting this month.
Resist is an easy technique I tend to forget to use. At Altered Pages we have several products you could use with this techniques: Faber Castell Gelatos, Niji Paints, Silks, Mica Paints, Splash Inks, even Dylusion Inks & Sprays.
Today an am using my Faber Castell Gelatos and my Niji Waterbrush from Yatsumoto Arts. This month we are cross promoting with I found a few blank postcards to use the resist technique. These will be perfect to send a quick note to a few of my girlfriends.
Watercolor Postcard stock
Clear Embossing Powder
First, stamp the sentiment on the card and heat emboss with embossing powder. On your craft mat scribble a little color from your Faber Castell Gelatos using a Niji Waterbrush apply color wash over the embossed sentiment.
You could cover the whole card with color if you like. Today I wanted to be a minimalist!
