My resistance is low

Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received=0

If I tell you that I was watching Colombo at 3am this morning you will get a sense of how I’m feeling today. It was particularly annoying given that it was a day when youngest son was neither coming in late, or leaving the house early.

I’m sharing a card that I have made for this week’s Sunday Stampers challenge for which you have to use a resist technique. Which is quite funny really because today my resistance is non-existent, never mind low:


 I started with a piece of glossy card and Ryn’s Seabubbles stamp. I stamped the image using a clear(ish) embossing pad and clear embossing powder. Once it had been heat set I spritzed on various Dylusions ink sprays. The embossing acts as a resist.


I used the same technique for the little starfish, cutting them out afterwards.


I found a piece of muslin and attached the background to it using spray glue before layering on to some faux sand paper. The embossed starfish were easy to manipulate into starfish type poses (have you noticed how they pose when they are in rock pools or stranded on the beach?).


I’ve added some mica flakes, little shells and, my current favourite obsession when creating a sea themed piece, small pearls. I love the pearls against that muslin. The twine bow just finishes it all off.



Just one more thing… Colombo had his case all wrapped up, except actually he didn’t. It was rare episode when someone else took the rap to save the dying murderess. I love a bit of Colombo, but preferably not in the small hours of the morning.

  1. A wonderful lesson in this resist technique and your starfish are so cute (never thought I would say that about starfish, but, along with the little shells, they are).

    By the way, I do all my best crafting at 3 am!
