Challenge Title: It’s Not Hard to Resist
Hostess: Jeanne S
Keyword: MIX2

Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge here on Splitcoast! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages.

My challenge today is a technique that you may have already done! It uses the Embossing Resist technique that can be found in the Splitcoast Resources section --> HERE

After heat embossing you can use any of the following mediums to color your image or background:

Dye based ink sprays
Dye based ink refills diluted with water
Dye based inks and sponges
Watercolors
Acrylic Paint (Acrylic resist tutorial here)
Stamps and dye ink stamped multiple times (full coverage over image)
Or a combination of any of the above!

Another fun challenge - thanks Jeanne! Here is my U ROCK! card.

Cook22 02-07-2013 10:52 PM

My WT card yesterday was embossing resist - but I'm more than happy to have another go later on today :D. I might take it up a notch and use Emerging Colours, since I've only tried that once before. Thanks, Jeanne :D.

Cook22 02-08-2013 02:02 AM

And here I am :D. With very inky fingers, and badly needing to tidy my desk.

One "benefit" of being sick is you wake up at 3AM and can't go back to sleep, so what's a girl to do??? The NEW Mixability challenge, of course!!!
Here is my TAG , and my Book Page .

This was so much fun, Jeanne! I've never done an Emboss Resist before... {I think I'm hooked}.

Lift Me Up

Serenity_Stamper 02-08-2013 07:27 AM

i just invented a technique that does NOT work :) I used Ranger acryllic pearl paint dauber (like Beate's video), and then somehow I had it in my head I needed to add clear embossing powder. EPIC FAIL.

I think I need to done one technique or the other, but not combine them. EITHER Versamark plus EP.... OR acryllic paint on its own.

The other thing I tried was the new illuminarte pigment pad from SU! (because I can't just find my Versamark pad right now) - and I used that with these pan pastels I have been wanting to try. It turned out ok, not great.

Thanks for the encouragement to play. I am first just trying a combo of products on different tags. When I find a combo I like, I'll hopefully design something. OR I'll just put these in my art journal.

Either way, I only gave myself until 8:30 to play today. Now it is upstairs to work.

Love what you guys are doing out there in the gallery.

Blessings,

Lela

It's only the second Mix challenge and I am thoroughly challenged to get out of my comfort zone - again!!!

I've looked through the gorgeous gallery and picked up a few ideas of how I might join in at my basic skill level. I hope to be back later with something to post. Right now, I'm thinking acrylic paints ...

mamaxsix 02-08-2013 08:35 AM

I had a lot of fun with this using emboss and masking fluid resist techniques and LOTS of sponging! Here's mine- Who Can Resist Paris in the Rain?

starbucks_stamper 02-08-2013 08:57 AM

I finally got a chance to get a picture of my card and had so much fun playing along Jeanne... Great challenge!!

This was my first time joining this challenge, and I think I will definitely be back! I went an easy way for coloring -- sponging and distress inks. Here's my card:

I've been stalking you guys for a week and finally got to play. Acrylic resist was a new technique for me. My card: Splitcoaststampers: FOOGallery - Thank You in Grunge Techniques - Crafts & Projects Gallery
