Video: Lydia’s Crafty Corner – Stickers as a Resist

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone and a very happy Friday to you! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing a technique that allows you to stretch your sticker supplies and use them for a resist technique.

DSC02933I started with the fun Reflection Collection Alphabet Stickers. First, I took some of the stickiness off of them with my fingers before adding them into place onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Solar White Cardstock. I used a gridded ruler to help me get them into place. Once I was happy with the placement, I then inked over the letters. Here, I used a finger dauber and blended Ruby Red, Orange Cream, Warm Sunshine, Parrot, Lagoon and Deep Iris Inks for both cards. For the first panel, I added the ink in dots, and for the second card, I did stripes.

DSC02934Once the ink blending was done, I then removed the alpha stickers. Be a little careful when you do this as you don't want to rip any of your cardstock. I then added the panels to card bases made from Warm Sunshine Cardstock. I left the dotty card as is, but for the striped card, I added the stickers back onto it, slightly off-setting them to create a drop shadow effect.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll see you again really soon!
