Autumn Theme for MMM and ATC Stamp and Swap Blog

It' October and that can only mean one thing - AUTUMN. Over on Make My Monday the challenge this week is to muse a RESIST TECHNIQUE - take a look at what I came up with


The leaf images were stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then coloured over with a white wax crayon. I then used some Stampin' Up inks - Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust and sponged these over. The wax crayon resists the ink and gives a really bright highlight to the card.


When you look to the side you can see that this is a different style of card - I found one here on Ruth's blog and she had a link to a YouTube video tutorial which I followed.
Here is the inside panel


This card uses the French Foliage stamp set.
The theme over on the ATC Stamp and Swap blog is also Autumn and I have used this technique to create my ATCs


Hope you can pop over and take a look - Jacqueline xx

  1. Difficult to think it is autumn with the very hot weather at the moment but this card certainly has a lovely autumnal feel

  4. Hi Jacqueline, I think your card is wonderful. the colours you have used are so rich (much more than the distress inks if I am honest lol) and its a great fold. Your ATCS are fab too!

  5. I saw this technique demonstrated at convention last year and was wowed by it then. Your card and ATCs are fabulous - the technique looks great with the French Foliage leaves. Vx
