Resistance is futile: brayer and video

Hope you had a great weekend :)
This is week is all about resist techniques. Our DT will show you different ways to create a resist on your project through lovely samples, step by steps and videos. 
Starting this week is Michelle who make a great video which not only shows you a resist technique on glossy card, but also gives you quite a few tips on brayering. 

This is Michelle's first video, and I think she did a great job, don't you? 

I trimmed the brayered piece to size and cut a white mat to go under it and then stamped the chandelier on white card using the Kaleidacolor inkpad then applied TH Broken China and Peeled Paint over the stamping.

I cut out the roulette wheel with a circle nestabilities die and cut the centre of the wheel out of that. One circle was tucked behind the image and the other was mounted on sticky pads and embellished with a resist stamped flourish. I then just stamped the text on the ribbon using black versafine.

Material list:

Andy Skinner acrylic stamps: Antiques
Versamark ink pad
Versafine ink pad - black
Nestabilities - Classic Circle, small
Combo cluster pack: christmas

  5. WOW! You are soooo brave!I would never have thought to go back over my work in the opposite direction! But it works! What a super effect!So much better than leaving the stripey effect! TFS!

  6. Really enjoyed the video, love the technique.

  7. Thank you for the video, it was really good! The finished project is fabulous. I love the colours xx

  8. Brilliant video Michelle. I'm going to have a go at this following your instructions - my previous brayer attempts haven't been great.
