A Technique I Haven't Tried Before....

The other day I was at my friendly, local scrapbook store, Memory Lane Scrap booking (become a FB fan), in beautiful Missoula, Montana, when I notice the most beautiful card. I could tell there had been some resist technique there, but it was not "bumpy". I could clearly see that there had not been any clear embossing powder used. The color of ink was gorgeous. The gal that was originally helping me said that she didn't know how they had made it, except that she knew they had used a brayer. Hmmmm. I thought I was going to have to sit in on this class.

Well, to my luck, in comes an owner of the store and she shows me all the supplies I need to use this technique. It is called Watermark Resist Technique.

Here is what I used to make this card...
Cardstock: Whisper White, Brushed Silver (Stampin' Up), Glossy Paper (Inkssentials Ranger); Ink: Archival Ink, Big & Juicy Waterfall ( Inkssentials Ranger); Stamps: Music to My Heart ({Ippity}); Punch: Loops (Martha Stewart); Ribbon: Bermuda Bay (Stampin' Up); Accessories: Mini Paper Clips (Ideaology-Tim Holtz)

Over all this card was really simple to make and you can watch a YouTube tutorial HERE.

As most of you know, I have recently found Unity and {Ippity} stamps and completely in love with them. Please take the time to check out the Unity Kit of the Month, and the cute, fun and hip new {Ippity} sets. You will have a Unity collection of your own in no time flat!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look today. Please let me know what you think of my first try at my fun new technique!!

Have a great day!!
