Acrylic Resist Birthday

Instead of hunkering down and doing my Creative Chemistry 101 homework, I got distracted by the Acrylic Resist tutorial over on Splitcoast and decided I needed to give it a try. Here's what came out:

I opened and used my Adirondack Pearl acrylic paint dauber to ink the flourish from my SU Baroque Motifs set. I stamped it on Very Vanilla, then heat set it to dry.  I sponged over it with a few Distress Inks, stamped a few flowers from a HA set in Antique Linen, then sponged the edge of the die-cut piece with Antique Linen, too. Some Crumb Cake seam binding, a HA sentiment, a miscellaneous button, and done!

Okay, NOW I'm going to do some homework. Or maybe make a cherry blossom card. I guess I'll find out when I get going, huh? :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is SO gorgeous! THe colours you used are so sweet & springy. I gotta break out the paint more. Happy Weekend!

  2. Oh I'm soooo glad that you did it!! This card turned out PERFECT!! Lovely soft colors. A beautiful birthday card for someone special. :)

    I KNEW you could do this technique!! :D

  3. Lots of fun aspects to this card... That Top Note die still rocks... *smile*


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
