Dare to Resist with Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome. Over at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog we are already half way through the latest challenge, 'Dare to Resist'. Our host for this challenge is Autumn Clark - here's what she's looking for; "as we break away from our Valentine creations, we'd love to see you incorporate a favorite resist technique in your vintage or shabby chic project. There are so many options, perhaps you will try something new. Whether it be gesso resist, Vaseline resist, alcohol resist, embossing resist, or watercolor resist, we dare you to resist!"

As ever, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

A Delicate Floral Card


I promised more collage style cards in my last post and so here's the latest one to share with you. Alongside those delicious Memoranda Paper Stash papers there are die cut florals, a die cut doily and a butterfly from Tim Holtz Botanical Layers pack.


The Resist Tutorial


Back in April 2016 I used a translucent texture paste resist method to create the background for a card. It worked so well that Tim Holtz was kind enough to share it as part of his Creative Chemistry 103 online course (read more HERE)! I love the end results but there's now an even speedier way to get a similar look thanks to the new Distress Resist Spray!


Begin with a piece of Memoranda and after covering with the Mosaic Layering Stencil and placing in a box, spray all over with Distress Resist Spray. Remove the stencil and clean immediately with water. The spray will leave a raised area which can be dried with a heat tool.


When the spray is dry blend Distress Oxide Ink over the top, rubbing over gently with a damp piece of tissue to remove the excess ink from the resist areas.


Cut the paper into tags and blend around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink.

The Close Ups


Some linen ribbon was added to the top of the tag and the Wildflower #2 die cut flowers were painted with Tattered Rose Distress Paint. The die cut doily was coloured with the Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink before being covered with Fractured Ice Embossing Powder. The Remant Rubs on the little tags come from the Special Delivery set.




So there you have it, my resist technique for the current Frilly and Funkie challenge. My talented team mates have also created lots of amazing projects for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE. And remember to link up your own die cut shabby chic or vintage projects, to be in with a chance of winning one of the fabulous prizes.

I'll be back over on the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog with a new tutorial for you on Saturday.
For now, take care of yourselves and get creative! Jenny xxx
