Who would have thought we stampers would be using Vaseline in our art? Well, it works to make a wonderful resist.
Vaseline Resist Technique
You will need:
something to rub the vaseline on (wax paper works)
watercolors or watery-ink
stamp of your choice
Rub Vaseline on wax paper.
Stamp into the Vaseline, then stamp on cardstock.
Prepare your ink (either by spritzing watercolor with water, or watering down some reinkers, or smooshing the inkpad cover down into the ink to make a palette on the cover).
Paint over the Vaseline with the watery-ink. (This step smears the Vaseline which continues to "resist" the ink to varying degrees. Notice the background in these samples.)
If desired, stamp with StazOn.
Have fun. Let's see what you create.
