Use Gesso over magazine pages to create a wonderful resist look.
- Foam Brush
- Clear Embossing Powder
- Heat Gun
- Silhouette Stamps
- Two or three coordinating ink colors
Apply gesso to the magazine page with a foam brush. Pour it directly onto the page and apply with the brush for best results.
Apply several layers until it is slightly opaque. Allow to dry completely. Do not use heat gun.
The paper will be slightly wrinkled - this is normal.
Stamp a silhouette style image onto the gessoed magazine page with Versamark ink, apply clear embossing powder, and emboss with the heat gun.
Using a sponge, apply the lightest color of ink over the embossed area.
Sponge the second color of ink over the image.
Sponge the darkest ink over the image last.
To intensify the color near the flowers, use a blender pen and the darkest color ink to color directly near each flower and stem.
Finish your card.
