Resist Technique with 3D Texture Fades and Distress Oxides

Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades with Distress Oxide Resist
Happy Friday! It is the first Friday of the month - and time for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey. Amanda is our host and the theme is How can you resist. Here is the description:
There are any different products in mixed media that you can use to do a resist technique - gesso, distress glaze, wax, embossing powder, etc. We would like you to use at least one resist technique on your vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk project.

I recently treated myself to one of the (relatively) new 3D Texture Fades from Tim Holtz so decided to use this for my resist technique.

I started with a Distress Oxide background in blues and greens. I then added versamark to the embossing folder and ran it through the big shot so the versamark transfers to the card in the 'flat' areas rather than the embossed areas. I heat dried with clear embossing powder.

This allowed me to add as much Distress Oxide as I liked to the embossed area along with some spritzing and the colour easily wipes away from the background blue/green.

I also used a wax resist on my Distress Paint background layer - but I think I have managed to hide most of this!!!

  2. Lovely card, Nikki. I am going to use these techniques with my existing folders. For the wax resist, did you paint onto glossy cardstock?

    1. Hi Cheryl - no just normal card - I painted in one colour - added some candle wax and then painted with another colour. Once the paint was dry I wiped off the paint that is over the wax!
