The twist was we were to interview each other to get to know each other a bit more…how fun! Cheryll and I got together via Zoom for our chat. It still amazes me this is possible to talk with someone across the world as if we were in the same room.
When Cheryll shared one of her favorite projects she created with me, I knew this was the perfect choice for my inspiration. You can see Cheryll’s full post HERE for the Crayon Resist Technique.
I found out Cheryll loves complicated and chaotic when it comes to her cardmaking. She is especially drawn to water coloring or really any color blending techniques where it is difficult to create the same thing twice. The messier the better.
For my project I wanted to create something using a resist technique and color blending, but I am not a big fan of messy projects so I avoided the watercoloring and went with ink blending with a Blending Brush to pull in my own style as well.
I started off with a Thick Basic White card base and added a Vellum Cardstock layer. I love the softness the Vellum creates.
To create the resist technique I die-cut a few elements with the Wisteria Dies from some Masking Paper and applied them to my Basic White cardstock layer before adding the Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen inks with the Blending Brush. I stayed with the greens since they are Cheryll’s favorite to work with.
Next I removed the masking paper and added a little bit of splatter with the Light Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blend by flicking the brush top against the cap. This works wonderfully, but you need to be aware that it does blow out the tip so you will want a second set for coloring purposes.
I layered the water colored (yes I went ahead and did a little bit of water coloring) butterfly with a few Evening Evergreen die-cut leaves and some Simply Elegant Gold Trim. The butterfly is one of both our favorite images so it was a fun image to incorporate.
The gold pearls from the Festive Pearls embellishments added the perfect finishing touch.
