Texture Spray Resist

by Beate Johns

Use texture spray to create your own resist background.



  1. Step 1

    Spray or dab Texture Spray to a blending tool.

  2. Step 2

    Dab the blending tool over the stamp, inking the entire image.

  3. Step 3

    Stamp the image on cardstock or patterned paper.

    After stamping the image, clean the stamp right away. Don't let the texture spray dry on the stamp.

  4. Step 4

    Start sponging dye ink over the resist image.

  5. Continue to sponge ink over the entire piece to reveal the image.

  6. Step 5 (Optional)

    Add a second color of ink.

  7. Step 6

    Finish the card.



    Try spraying the texture spray over masks instead of stamping an image with it. Or spray it over a brass stencils.

What's the difference in effect between heat embossing the pattern with clear powder, and using Goosebumps? I know the embossed clear area would be shiny and the Goosebumps area wouldn't.

Also, could you get the same result by stamping the colored image with a stamp painted with bleach?

And what do you clean the Goosebump-ed stamps with?

Wow! What a beautiful card!! This is the first time I've heard of goosebumps. Must try this one out! Thanks for the tutorial!

Very cool! Does this work like stamping with Versamark and then inking over?

i can't say i've ever heard of Goosebumps - i'll have to investigate it and see if it is available over here in the UK.

Hi Nancy and Caryn,

Yes there are multiple different way to create a resist look. We have tutorials for a lot of them in our resource section:

Acrylic Resist
Burned Batik
Color Wash Faux Bleach
Crayon Resist
Crayon Rubbed Embossing
Embossing Resist
Emerging Color
Faux Mother of Pearls
Gesso Resist
Ghosting (Versamark Resist)
Joseph's Coat
Magic Snowflake
Mulberry Batik
Rubber Cement Resist
Shimmery Resist
Smooch Spritz Resist
Wax Paper Cuttlebug Resist
Wax Paper Resist

I just wanted to showcase another way to create a resist look.

Nancy, Stamping with bleach looks a bit different. You remove color from the cardstock you stamp on instead of adding an image with a product that will resist the ink you add over the image.

I clean my stamp right after I use with a wet cloth first, then with my regular stamp cleaner.

Where can I find Goosebumps spray?

Love this technique. I'd love to see how you actually finish your beautiful cards in the videos, though. I know you are highlighting the technique, but the finished cards are so beautiful, I'd like to see more. smile What do you do on the insides?

What is the lacy oval die? I love it. Is it a Nestabilities?
Nancy Walker  |  Wed Apr 25, 2012 at 7:52 AM
Lately I have been leaving my card insides blank, since I mostly work with white card bases now. If I add something, it's just a slim patterned paper strip (same that I have to used in the front).

Yes, the oval is called Floral Oval Nestabilities die and is my FAVORITE from the latest Spellbinders release. I am a bit obsessed with it. It makes every project just a bit more beautiful!

You can purchase Goosebumps in many online stores. Just google it.

Wonderful tutorial! I have had Goosebumps sitting on my shelf for a while and didn't know how to use it. Now I can! Thanks!

I can't wait to try this but was wondering what the dimensions of the finished card was?
iris gustavson  |  Wed Apr 25, 2012 at 10:06 AM
I have used it as a mister type spray for background. Will have to try this! Thanks for sharing.
