Distress Resist Oxide Effects

Hi Friends,

I have had distress resist spray for a long time now and never got to it. I made two cards using this spray. They are the same technique just different effects. I used distress inks to do water color onto a white Bristol Smooth paper from Canson.

Distress Spray effect using stencil and distress ink

For the first card I sprayed the distress resist spray on to the cards stock using Pretty Pink Posh, Waves stencil. i then loosely water colored using distress inks. I heat set between layers and kept adding colors until i was happy with the vibrancy of the colors. The resist spray kept the water color from tinting the waves and helped it to stay white and bold as you can see in the image above.


I stamped the dolphin and the crabs stamps from SSS, called Never Quit Swimming onto a 80lbs Neenah Solar white cardstock with MFT black hybrid ink for copic coloring the images. i adhered the critters on the wave as if they were having a beautiful morning swim in the bright and cheery water.

Shaker card and Distress Resist Spray effect.

For the second card, I first did a light wash of water color on the Bristol Smooth paper, dried it and then added the resist spray. Doing this made the waves look subtle and not as bright as the previous card. My idea was to show the deeper waters where the jelly fish live. I stamped and embossed the jelly fish on to vellum card stock using white embossing powder.I cut four different sizes of circles to make this into a shaker card. I added the confetti only in the three smaller circles and kept the the larger circle empty as i did not want to take away from the jelly fish and the resist technique I had done earlier. Added some blings and I was one.

Here is a video on how I made this card.

I hope you will give resist spray a go. See you next time until then keep shining and spreading some handmade Kindness.
