Merry Christmas Blues

Gosh, it feels like ages since I have blogged just for myself. This weekend I attended the Scrap-A-Mania convention and managed to make some cards. And you'll get to see some of them the next few weeks.
I have for a while wanted to test out a technique, which I saw done by Jennifer McGuire. The result was really eye catching and interesting.
I believe Jennifer called this technique Distress Paint Resist.

The card is only a one layer plus the card base. The only embellishments used are some dots and a bit of Wink of Stella in White.

Doing this technique I learned an important thing.

As I am using Distress Paint is it very crusial that you clean your stamps right after you have stamped with the paint. A wet tissue is not enough! You'll need to use water and a soft brush. Reason is the paint goes into all little creeks on the stamp and this need to be cleaned out properly and before it dries.

That's all for today.
