We're looking at "resist" techniques this week & I've a single twisted easel design for you using one of Woodware's new season's stamps by Jane Gill "Dotty Flowers". The design part of the card i.e the resist bit I've done with the silver embossing & then lightly sponged over the top with chalk  inkpads. When the ink is dry you just gently wipe the embossing with a dry cloth because it has resisted the ink. The bottom layer is a different resist technique. This is done by stamping with Versamark (this is a watermark inkpad) & then dusting over the design with powders, in this case the Metallic FX powders. The colour will cling to the stickiness of the Versamark pad but you can dust away the excess. The easel design is quite simple, just take a 6x6 card blank & fold the left hand side from the top right corner to the bottom left corner (inwards). All you need is a "stop" bar across the centre diagonally - the design sits on the triangle you have created. The design has been layered onto silver mirror card & I've added a few dots of silver Stickles just to highlight the flowers. To finish add the Elements,the paper flowers & the buttons.
