“R” is for…

Razzle Dazzle, Resist & Rhinestones!


I’ve had my eye on this color combo for some time now.  The In-color Rich Razzleberry is such a…well the name says it, rich and vibrant color.  I have a difficult time using it as a card base but it makes a fabulous accent color.  Paired with the In-color Bermuda Bay and layered onto a Kraft card base, it’s perfect!

This was the first time that I have ever attempted this resist technique.  It’s called VersaMark Resist.  I Rafound a great tutorial HERE on Splitcoast Stampers.  I’ll give you a quick look at how I achieved this look.  I started with a Whisper White panel (the tutorial called for Glossy card stock).  Using the border stamp in Razzle Dazzle, I stamped one end of the panel using VersaMark® ink.  I sponged Rich Razzleberry Classic ink right over top of the VersaMark.  RbOnce I was happy with the coverage, I wiped the excess ink off the the VersaMark.  The VersaMark resists the ink and the image is revealed in a lighter shade.  I will certainly be trying this technique using the Glossy cs…just to see what kind of difference it makes.  I love how this turned out!  I markered the flourish using Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry.  The Rich Razzleberry RcPolka Dot ribbon actually serves a purpose.  I wanted to hide where the resist image meets the white.  The panel was then layered onto Bermuda Bay with one side Scallop Edge punched.  I used two small and one medium Turquoise Rhinestone brads.  I didn’t want the bulk of the silver portion of the brad,Rd so I pried open the prongs on the back and popped the rhinestone out.  They are adhered using Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment is from the Razzle Dazzle set and stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink.  

I’m so glad you’ve stopped by today.  I encourage you not to resist trying something new.  It just may be exactly what you had envisioned.  It may not…but it’s only paper and ink!  Have a blessed day!
