Resist Stamping

Supplies needed: Rainbow ink pad, brayer, high gloss card stock (the glossier the better), stamps of choice, clear ink pad


Ink up your stamps with the the clear ink pad


Randomly stamp on your piece of glossy card stock, be careful not to let the stamp slip


Load your brayer with lots and lots of ink. Keep rolling it over the rainbow ink pad until you have a good amount of ink and ensure you have all round coverage


Roll your brayer backwards and forwards in a quick motion applying pressure, until all or most of the ink has disappeared off the brayer. By doing this you are pushing and spreading the coloured ink away from the clear ink, thus creating a resist. If you do not follow these steps, the technique will not work properly. You will know if you are doing it right as the stamped images will just 'pop' out at you. It does take a bit of practise


This is something like what you will end up with - the glossier the card the better


I did this in exactly the same way but used the Big n Juicy spice ink pad


I then decided to pick a colour from the rainbow pad and overstamped using the same images. Again, be careful not to let the stamp slip


These are my two finished pieces
