Acrylic Paint Resist

Hello crafters, Kirsten here.
I hope you had a nice weekend.
I’ve got a quick card to show you today, using white acrylic paint as a resist, instead of embossing powder.


Put some paint onto your craft sheet & spread it out with a  palette knife. Put your stamp - I used the Joy Craft Vintage Flourish Leaf 1 stamp - onto an acrylic block & tap it GENTLY into the paint, you want a fairly smooth, even coverage.


 Stamp onto the paper, gently again. Putting too much pressure on the acrylic block will cause the paint to spread. I’ve used a piece of one of the patterned papers from the new
CWC collection ‘Opulence’. Dry the paint with a heat tool – that will take seconds.
Remember to clean your stamp immediately with water. Alternatively, cover it with a wet baby wipe until you have time to clean it properly.


Next step, cover the entire piece with distress ink, I used Dried Marigold. ( You could also use Adirondack inks). Take a clean baby wipe & remove the DI from the painted image, dry the paper with a heat tool for a few seconds.


I layered the paper onto another piece from the Opulence collection, added the birthday greeting, also from Opulence, (layered with a scalloped die cut) & embellished with gold diamond mesh & gold liquid pearls.
