Stamped Canvas Resist

Hi All!

It's Jodi here with a fun easy tutorial for you using sticky-back canvas, Distress Paint  and Distress Stains. I'll be using the  "Mermaid Treasure" set for my art.

Okay, so here's what you need to do this technique:
A craft sheet, various Distress Stains (medium to dark colors work best - I used Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord), light colored Distress Paint (I used Peeled Paint, Picket Fence and Spun Sugar), sticky back canvas (by Ranger) and a spritz bottle with water.

First, take your Distress Paint and apply it directly to the stamp and stamp it onto the canvas. The paint dries pretty quick, but you can hurry it along a bit using a heat tool. The Distress Paint will cause a resist with the stains.

Next, making sure the paint is dry, use the spritz bottle with water and get the canvas good and wet. This will help the Distress Stains bleed together better. Use the Distress Stain on the whole canvas, including the stamped image.

You can blot off the stains a bit if you want it to look a little more faded, otherwise use the heat tool or let it dry naturally.

I added some bubble with a transparent Viva Decor pen as well as some ribbon and other little goodies to make it a bookmark.

 And you're finished! Hope you decide to give it a try yourself.

Until Next Time!
