Splitcoast Tutorial: Adhesive Resist

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is brought to us by Ranger Ink! They're sharing an Adhesive Resist technique that can be done with matte adhesive.

I don't have Ranger's matte adhesive, but I have a jar of matte Mod Podge, so I used that instead - my application was a little uneven, which I like after all! I think Elmers Glue-All will work too and I will try that next time, but the Mod Podge has a little more body to it.

The stencil I used is called Both Way Stripes, and it's from A Colorful Life Designs (remember code DinaFan10 at checkout if you want to save 10%!). I masked off each section to brush on the ink, but then went back in and overlapped a little of the color. This stencil is amazing because - there are 5 striped sections, but 4 of them fit perfectly on an A2 card! Well designed.

The dies I used are brand new Spring designs by Anna Wight - this is a sweet little combination of 3 different sets! I especially love the wreath, and I have another idea for it that I'll be trying soon. For the opening, I cut a circle in my stenciled panel. The back panel is connected with a 1/2" hinge at the top fold.

Here's a closer look at the stenciling... I'm fascinated by the little fiber marks in there - not really sure what caused that effect!

Couple other things... I have just 2 of these bracelets in my etsy store - these were prototypes testing different bangle styles. They're so cute!

I've also added some loose handmade beads (half strands) to the store, in case someone else might want to make a bracelet or incorporate paper beads into their other jewelry work. If not - they're really pretty hanging above my desk!

My daffodils are pushing up... and I'm working on Fall and Winter stamps today. All the ironies of an industry designer.... cheers!
Thanks for stopping by!
